  • Women Driving Political Change

Friday, 15 October 2010

The VAW strategy consultation in delivering for BME women and young girls was hosted by EHRC, Amnesty International UK and Southhall Black Sisters. I participated in the discussions to improve services for these women and hope the consultation submission to Government in March 2011 will include the work required to continue in the CVS.

The work focused on services; prevention and policies and other areas, presentations were provided from EHRC and Hannah Siddiqui on the consultation. The global work on VAW and the channels and proposals for consideration including a new creation of a VAW act and what that should entail.

20 targeted women organisations, and individual members attended from CRASAC, Roshni, West Midlands Strategic Migration Partnership, Women Networking Hub, Haven, Breathe, RSVP and more; selected strictly to directly engage with women across the West Midlands.

I was pleased tp contribute to the agenda which needs  public scrutiny and I hope the challenges upon us on public sector cuts that women inequalities will not be the first to feel them.
