Oxford Children’s Rights Network will be holding our first event of the term- a workshop on Female Genital Mutilation/ Cutting and global and local responses, run by Kate Clayton-Hathway, Research Director of Oxford Against Cutting and volunteers from Oxford Against Cutting.
Oxford Against Cutting (https://www.oxfordagainstcutting.org/) is a pioneering rights-based group working to help prevent female genital mutilation (FGM) of girls and women living in Oxfordshire. They’ve been active bringing together multiple health, education and child welfare agencies to eradicate this violation of women and children’s rights.
The event will be of interest to anyone keen to see how global issues of children’s rights play out in our local community, and the practical ways that children’s rights research can be translated into effective, on-the-ground solutions.
A light sandwich lunch will be provided. Please fill in http://bit.ly/ocrnlunch so that have an idea of numbers and any dietary requirements.
