Following the publication of our first book in September, Different Cultures, One World: Women’s Voices from South Yorkshire, we were overwhelmed by the support we received, with the books being bought by people from South Yorkshire to Canada! Needless to say, we soon sold out and had to order our second print run. Women’s Voices is now back in stock and ready and waiting for you to read it! If you’d like to find out more about the book, the women who wrote it and the support of our donors, please visit our Women’s Voices page or order a copy from us via email: email@example.com. We promise you won’t regret it!

November 25th is the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women – what will you be doing to mark it?
As well as raising awareness of the End Violence Against Women message, DEWA will be attending The Angelou Centre‘s Reclaiming the Domestic Violence Agenda Conference being held at Northumbria University in Newcastle. We are very excited about this opportunity as it will give us the chance to learn how to meet the needs of BME women, identify how we can influence policy on violence against women and network with similar organisations.
We hope that by attending the conference we will be able to campaign more effectively against violence against women and provide better support to women survivors, enabling us to help more women reach their full potential.
For more information, please contact our Campaigns Officer, Tchiyiwe, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
