Event Details

This seminar, run by Irene Zeilinger, will explore the role of self defence in preventing violence against women.

Based on a report produced for the European Parliament, this seminar will look at the definition of women's self defence - including a critical analysis of violence which holds perpetrators accountable and challenges victim blaming - and how it can prevent violence against women.

It will explore how self defence can be used to enable women and girls to
develop a confident relationship with their bodies, empower women and expand their freedom.

Although women's self-defence has proven to be an efficient tool in reducing violence against women, it remains the poor parent of public policy and has to face opposition even from within the women's movement against violence. The seminar will look into reasons for this lack of attention and support for a prevention tool that actually works.


Welsh Women's Aid members: free (maximum of two free places per member)
Non-members: £15
