‘Fighting for a Childhood’ – Family Forum 2021

Our Forum for this October will be looking at forced marriage, FGM, child poverty and honour-based abuse. We have three speakers who have confirmed their attendance, namely, Newnhamite, Louise McCallum, who is a Barrister specialising in cases concerning forced marriage, as well as Jasvinder Sanghera CBE who was a victim of forced marriage herself, is a best-selling author and set up the charity Karma Nirvana, that supports victims of forced marriage and honour-based abuse.

Our third speaker is Jennifer Webb. Jennifer grew up in a low income, single parent household and went on to read English at Oxford. She then forged a career in education. She describes herself as a “teacher, leader, author, blogger and speaker” and will come to the conference from the angle of child poverty.

The Forum is a unique opportunity to get together to discuss issues relevant to the raising, encouraging and empowerment of the next generations. Do bring your partner, friend, daughter, son, or perhaps your mum!

Tickets are £20, including a full day of talks and discussion, morning refreshments, and a two-course lunch in College Hall.
