How Can Politicians Contribute Towards Reducing Gender-Based Violence? – The Open University Business School

Gender-based violence has been referred to as the ‘shadow pandemic’ as, worldwide, one in three women will experience physical or sexual violence – in the UK, a woman is killed every three days by domestic violence.

This webinar, co-chaired by OUBS Policing academic Dr Anna Hopkins and OU Professor SImon Usherwood, will hear the views of politicians across a variety of political parties of what they can do to contribute towards a reduction in gender-based violence.

During the webinar, lasting an hour, the audience will hear a personal account from Julie Aunger, who lost her daughter to a domestic homicide. Panel members will take questions from the Chair and there also will be an opportunity to ask your own questions to the panel relating to gender-based violence.


Tuesday, November 30m 2021 – 19:30 to 20:30 GMT (14:30-15:30 EST)
