of November has been designated by the UN as the International Day for the
Elimination of Violence against Women.
American women in the UK are largely ‘unrecognised’. This,
among many other factors, contributes to their increased vulnerability in
situations of abuse. The Latin American Women’s Rights Service, an independent
London based charity, is pleased to invite you to attend to the first
conference on Latin American Women and Gender Abuse in the UK.
This is a
pioneering conference focused on heightening awareness of the difficulties
faced by Latin American women survivors of abuse, which will be a great
opportunity to service providers, statutory agencies, practitioners and members
of the Latin American community.
