Part of: THIS WEEKEND: Storyhouse Women

In 2017/18 in England and Wales over one in four women were victims of domestic violence; 400,000 women were sexually assaulted; 60,000 women were raped and two women died every week because of domestic violence.

Tina Royles, author of When the Apple of Your Eye is Rotten at the Core, will lead a discussion with a panel of women who have survived an abusive relationship.
Cara Fletcher (Chester Women’s Aid) will talk about why she likes the phrase Love Shouldn’t Hurt. She will bring emotional abuse and gaslighting to the forefront of the discussion. The panel will also feature University of Chester student Chinwe Mirian who will talk about the state of domestic violence in Nigeria, Chinwes home country.

The panel will also cover the important topic of “prevention and anticipation” and will go into how the fire and police service work closely with Chester Women’s Aid.

Chester Women’s Aid will available for support after the event.
