Godolphin & Latymer Bishop Centre: “small talk” with Dexter Dias QC “FGM: An ongoing national and international scandal” Tuesday 15 November 7pm

Tuesday, November 15, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm GMT

PLEASE NOTE DATE CHANGE TO TUESDAY 15 NOVEMBER!

“small talks” are a new type of public event at G & L where we explore contemporary issues in a less formal setting than the Public Lectures

Dexter Dias QC, human rights lawyer, researcher at Cambridge and Harvard and part-time Crown Court judge, explores one of the greatest human rights issues facing the world today: Female Genital Mutilation.

FGM is a criminal offence, child abuse, one of the most egregious forms of gender-based violence and the social control of women and yet there are 65,000 at-risk girls in the UK. And 200 million women worldwide live with the devastating legacy of this harmful practice. How can we protect them?

Dexter Dias has fought against this practice in the UK and internationally, writing reports to the United Nations and chairing and co-authoring a major report to the Parliamentary Inquiry into FGM which resulted in significant changes in the law including new High Court powers to intervene to protect girls from mutilation. Join us to examine the serious obstacles that still lie ahead to change the future of millions of young women.
