Listening to Women Resisting Violence - 27 January 2022

Please note that this event has passed.


At this online roundtable discussion, we present the Women Resisting Violence podcast project, which foregrounds the voices of women who have both suffered violence and who are building campaigns and initiatives to fight against gender violence from the grassroots up. Examples of their work are celebrated and held up as case studies of good practice, both within and beyond Latin America.

The roundtable will specifically focus on the podcast as a medium to positively influence broader policies around violence against women and include activists who participate in the podcasts as well as the makers, such as producer Louise Morris, for a discussion about contemporary forms of activism and collaboration across borders.

We'd love for you to join us and share your thoughts, or simply to listen to these powerful stories of transformation and solidarity.

Listen to the podcast ahead of the discussion on Apple Podcasts, Spotify or wherever you get your podcasts. Read about the project on our website.

This event is held by the Latin America Bureau and the Gender Studies Network at King's College London. The project was funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) Impact Acceleration Account held at King’s College London.

Behind every victory we have, there is a fight led by women who make it happen– Eliana Sousa Silva, director of Casa Das Mulheres and founder of Redes da Maré NGO, Rio de Janeiro.
