Upstairs at The Chapel – CHARITY EVENT – Violence against Women
We would like to ask that you please give your support to what we believe to be our most important evenings of the year.Consider these sobering statistics: 1 WOMAN IS KILLED BY A MAN EVERY 3 DAYS IN THE UK 1.6% OF REPORTED RAPES RESULTS IN A PROSECUTION 1 IN 3 WOMEN EXPERIENCE DOMESTIC ABUSE IN THEIR LIFETIME Why is this, and what can, and must be done, to stop this? With campaigning journalist Yvonne Roberts and others who work in the field we will look to find answers.
Yvonne Roberts has been an award-winning journalist in television, newspapers, magazine and radio for over fifty years. The former Chief leader writer of The Observer, she has also written several non-fiction and fiction books. After ten years as a foreign news reporter, she has focussed more on investigations, politics, all aspects of social policy and feminism both as a feature writer and a columnist.
It would be fantastic to have a full house at the Chapel. On the night you can also make a contribution to the debate. This is a charity event. Money from all ticket sales and takings will go to Cyfannol Women’s Aid. Separately you can also make donations to help support their work in Torfaen, Newport, Monmouthshire and Blaenau Gwent.
This evening coincides with White Ribbon Day on Friday 25th November – International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women.
