How to stop domestic violence, with Jessica Moor, Rachel Louise Snyder & Natalie Shaw
Thursday 14th May 18:30 at London - Gower Street
Join Jessica Moor, author of literary thriller Keeper (Viking) with award-winning journalist Rachel Louise Snyder, author of No Visible Bruises: what we don’t know about domestic violence can kill (Scribe), in conversation with Natalie Shaw.
An average of 137 women are killed by familial violence across the globe every day. In the UK alone, two women die each week at the hands of their partners, and in the US domestic violence homicides have risen by 32% since 2017. The WHO deems it a ‘global epidemic’. Yet public understanding of this urgent problem remains catastrophically low.
Jessica, Rachel and Natalie will discuss the victims and perpetrators involved in domestic violence, and how writing can give voice to the experiences of women all around us who are victims to this epidemic.
