In celebration of International Women's Day, the UCL Institute for Women’s Health is presenting a week of events to spark debate, conversation and awareness of the issues women face all over the world.

This film features nine activists speaking out about gender inequality, forced marriage, the right to education and female genital mutilation.

These women, who have witnessed and experienced these harmful practices first-hand, are profiled in their efforts to effect change, both in their communities and beyond. The film gives a platform to exclusively female voices and seeks to expose the paralyzing political correctness that prevents many from identifying, understanding and addressing these human rights disasters. It will inspire and provoke discussion between our panel and audience. Come along to share your perspectives, put your view across and learn from key opinion leaders and front line activists.

The post-panel rounded discussion will continue at our catered reception.
