Event description

Description

We are the Edinburgh chapter of the United Nation's annual 16 days of action against gender-based violence (November 25 - December 10). But more than that, this is where women from around the world share their experiences, opinions, talent, and knowledge.

Importantly, not only women's voices will be featured. Also spotlighted are the voices of men and organisations that ally with women in the fight against gender inequality and gender-based violence.
