Rooms of our Own had a stall at this excellent event on Friday 6th December at Walthamstow School for Girls. This is one amazing school. It was great to be back in the hall and see the inscription “Neglect Not the Gift that is in Thee” again.
There were a number of speakers including current and recent students at the school speaking powerfully about issues such as teen violence, drugs, peer pressure, domestic violence and its effect on children, female genital mutilation and forced marriage.
Several women spoke to us about the issues of finding space for organisations and activities tackling violence against women and girls.
