Aid to the Church in Need (ACN) is teaming up with Open Doors to present a panel event on a topic of great importance to both charities: the persecution of women and girls from religious minorities.
The event, on Tuesday 8th March 2022, International Women’s Day, will be on Zoom from 11am to 11.45am. Alongside first-hand accounts from survivors of sexual violence and forced conversion, the event will unpack further research into persecution of women from religious minorities and provide policy asks for the UK government.
BBC journalist Emily Buchanan will chair a discussion with 3 panellists. We will hear first-hand accounts from survivors of sexual violence and forced conversion. The event will outline research on the topic and propose policy asks for the UK government. We hope you can join us for this collaborative event.
