Event description

Description

Session Four: Dr Kristin Aune, Senior Research Fellow at the Centre for Trust, Peace and Social Relations, Coventry University speaking about Christian responses to domestic abuse.

This series of talks will take place at the University of Winchester, West Downs Quarter on Romsey Road, tea and coffee served in the Link Gallery from 6pm and talks to begin at 6.30 pm in room 9.

How and why has this form of violence become so pervasive and what factors contribute to violence against women? In an attempt to answer this question, The Institute for Theological Partnerships (ITP) would like to focus more intently on the role of religion. The major religious traditions are all theological systems which many people believe have been instrumental in the process of gender control, to the detriment of women. ITP would like to open up a conversation about the role of religion in gender violence with the aim of raising awareness but in also providing some hope for a future free from violence against women. Our distinguished speakers will be speaking about topics related to religion and violence and are designed to be thought-provoking and reflect the exciting work of the Institute for Theological Partnerships. We will close the series of talks with an Interfaith Forum where we will make a pledge to stand together against gender violence.
