Clare Chambers speaking on a panel on 'Women's Bodies, Private Places'

Women’s bodies, who do they belong to? A wide- ranging, multi-generational and diverse panel will explore issues around life as a woman. From boobs and body hair to body image and periods, how have attitudes changed and who decides what’s ‘right’? In conversation will be Dr Clare Chambers, author of 'Fat is a Feminist Issue' Susie Orbach, Roz Hardie, CEO of campaign group Object, Debra Bourne from All Walks Beyond the Catwalk, poet, singer, writer and actor Keisha Thompson, Alice Wroe from the Herstory project, trans woman Dr Rachael Padman and Becky Talbot from Dhiverse. 

Rae Langton will be chairing a panel on 'Enough! Ending Violence Against Women'

Gender-based violence in its many forms seems to have become an almost accepted backdrop to society. This session will challenge this 'normalisation' and put the case that to live in a world where women are not attacked or hurt in their daily lives - physically, sexually or virtually is possible.
