Join us at this historic moment in the movement to end “honour” based abuse, as we are on the verge of banning the harmful practices of child marriage, virginity testing and hymenoplasty. With MP’s and experts, we will be discussing IKWRO’s Virginity Does Not Define Me and Safeguard Futures Ban Child Marriage campaigns, and the holistic approach required to challenge the patriarchal and misogynistic norms that underpin “honour” based abuse. We will also be joined by Sahar Zand, Reporter for ITV’s documentary ‘Britain’s ‘Virginity’ Clinics Uncovered’, which IKWRO contributed to.
