Equality, Diversity & Inclusion

In recent days, the death of Sarah Everard has brought the issue of violence against women forcefully back into public consciousness, igniting a range of emotions for all those who have experienced gender-based violence, or who fear it – which is probably more than half the population.

The panel discussion will ask:

  • ‘Why do we need still need to reclaim the streets?’
  • Why is violence against women normalised in our society and how can we all actively take part to eliminate it?’

The panel will be chaired by Professor Sasha Roseneil, UCL Pro-Vice Provost (Equity & Inclusion), and will include:

  • Prof Heidi Mirza, Emeritus Professor, UCL Institute of Education (tbc)
  • Bell Ribeiro-Addy, MP for Streatham
  • Jayne Bullough, Training and Prevention Coordinator, Rape Crisis South London
  • Aarushi Menon, UCL Students’ Union Women’s Officer (tbc)
  • Panel discussion: 4:00 - 5:00 pm
  • Breakout discussion spaces: 5:00 - 5:30 pm
