The Role of Self Defence in Preventing Violence Against Women

Welsh Women’s Aid have recently drawn our attention to a very interesting report produced for the European Parliament which looks at the definition of women’s self defence – including a critical analysis of violence which holds perpetrators accountable and challenges victim blaming – and how it can prevent violence against women.

Here at Phoenix DAS we found the report very interesting and it has inspired many discussions and ideas for future development.

Welsh Women’s Aid are holding a seminar, run by Irene Zeilinger on Tuesday 6 February 2018, 9:30 – 12:00 in Cardiff.  It will explore how self defence can be used to enable women and girls to develop a confident relationship with their bodies, empower women and expand their freedom.

Staff from Phoenix DAS will be attending, if you would like to attend please contact Welsh Women’s Aid on info@welshwomensaid.org.uk
