Facebook Live session to answer questions on women’s safety in Northamptonshire
Main article content
A Facebook Live session which will give members of the public the opportunity to ask questions about women’s safety in Northamptonshire, will take place on Tuesday, December 7.
The session will start at 7pm live on Facebook and will give people access to three experts – Christine Morgan, CEO of Eve – an organisation with a mission to end domestic violence and abuse, Fiona Campbell, CEO of Voice for Victims and Witnesses, and Superintendent Sarah Johnson from Northamptonshire Police.
All three will be able to answer any questions the public may have – from what initiatives are taking place across the county to respond to concerns regarding women’s safety in and outside of the home, to how a concerned friend can support someone who they believe is suffering from domestic abuse.
The session is part of 16 Days of Activism - a campaign which runs from 25 November to 10 December and has seen organisations across Northamptonshire take a stand against gender-based abuse.
This year, the partnership has been hosting a virtual and face-to-face programme of activities to raise awareness of the world’s most persistent violations of human rights – violence against women - and promote the local support services available to women and men who have experienced physical or sexual violence or domestic abuse.
Superintendent Sarah Johnson, said: “Women’s safety is something I am really passionate about and this Facebook Live session will give members of the public an opportunity to ask any questions on this subject that they may have.
“Our live Facebook Q&As have proven popular with the local community because they’re unscripted - people can pose questions live, we don’t know what questions are coming, and we think that brings a level of authenticity to the process which the public in Northamptonshire have appreciated.
“I am honoured to be joined by Christine and Fiona for this session and between all three of us, will be able to answer questions across a broad range of topics relating to women’s safety.”
The session will take place at 7pm on Tuesday, December 7. If you cannot make the session live, please email your questions in advance to [email protected] and they will be read out live during the session.
