PBI-France holds conference on the struggle against gender violence in Kenya and France
On June 18, PBI France and allies held Conférence : Lutter contre les violences de genre (the ‘Fight against gender violence: Cross perspectives France Kenya’) at La Mutinerie in Paris.
The evening featured Kate Wangui, Ynaée Benaben and Fatima Ouassak.
Kate is with Kibera Women for Peace and Fairness, which works in Nariobi’s largest informal settlement.
Ynaée co-founded En avant toutes, an association that works for gender equality and the end of violence against women.
And Fatima is the founder of Réseau Classe/Genre/Race, a network that works on projects related to the issues of equality and intersectionality.
The public forum provided an overview of gender violence in France and Kenya as well as solutions on how to address that violence.
Thank you PBI-France for organizing this public forum and to the speakers who participated in it. This inspires PBI-Canada to work to organize similar public forums!
