KCLSU and NUS are joining forces with the UK Government Home Office and Government Equalities Office to challenge violence against women and girls.
NUS and KCLSU are jointly hosting a panel debate on Tuesday 25 November to explore the ways we, and men particularly, can help to end violence against women.
Joining Women’s Officer Susana Antubam and KCLSU’s Intersectional Feminist Society president Shruti Iyer on the panel will be:
- Jo Swinson MP, Minister for Women and Equalities
- Lynne Featherstone MP, Minister for Crime Prevention
- The White Ribbon Campaign
- England rugby legend Ikram Butt
This event will launch our Reclaim Your Campus campaign, a series of events across 16 days to engage students and students’ unions in action to make our society a safer and more equal place for women and girls. This is to support the UN’s annual 16 days of activism against violence against women and girls.
The event will be held at the Great Hall, King’s College Strand campus on Tuesday 25 November at 1pm.
This event is free and open to all, but spaces are limited. Students of KCL should arrive at the Great Hall, King’s College Strand campus for 12.30pm for a prompt 1pm start. Seats will be given on a first come, first served basis.
If you’re not a KCL student but you’d like to come along, drop firstname.lastname@example.org an email by Friday 21 November to reserve a space.
