TALK: There is No ‘Honour’ in Abuse

Storyhouse Women

Event details

This event is part of Storyhouse Women Weekend

Join Savera UK, a charitable organisation, for a crucial panel discussion shedding light on the ‘hidden’ issues of ‘honour’-based abuse (HBA) and harmful practices such as Female Genital Mutilation (FGM), forced marriage, virginity testing, and conversion therapy, happening here in Cheshire.  

Gain insights from the CEO and founder of Savera UK, Afrah Qassim, and hear stories from survivors, including FGM survivor and campaigner, Khatra Paterson.

Discover how these critical issues are being addressed in Cheshire, participate in an open dialogue, and have your questions answered. Get involved in Savera UK’s mission to put an end to ‘honour’-based abuse and harmful practices. This discussion aims to raise awareness, foster understanding, and encourage collective efforts towards creating a safer and more informed community.
