Working with Girls and Young Women Conference: ‘Challenging Ideas of Control and Consent’
A space to debate and share good practice
We are delighted to announce that this Conference will be taking place at Hinsley Hall, Leeds in October 2016.
The conference will include a mix of plenary/presentation-style sessions, workshops and interactive events.
Conference Participants are invited to offer workshops for sharing ideas, interests and practice.
We are look for a range of people to be involved e.g. people who run girls’ groups, people who work in Universities or research youth work/ feminism/ anti-sexist work, and other people who can bring useful understanding and experiences to this topic. We are especially interested to hear from people who represent lesser-heard groups, e.g. working class women, Black and Asian women (and women from other minoritised ethnicities), women with disabilities, trans women, LGB women etc.
All women who define as women welcome. We expect all women who come along to the space to be respectful of one another.
The space if for us to explore and discuss together. We cannot promise it will always feel like a ‘safe space’, as we want it to be a place where ideas and assumptions can be discussed and challenged.
However, we have an anti-discrimination stance, and will challenge racist, homophobic, sexist or ablest sentiments; or similar actions that infringe on the human rights/safety of others.
The National Lottery Awards for All programme is part-funding this event.
There are a limited number of FREE places for those who deliver a workshop or give a presentation. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for details of how to contribute a workshop.
