Title: UN Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women
Event Date: Monday, 25th November 2019
Speakers: Sarbjit Kaur Athwall and Dr Clive Driscoll
Time: 5pm for a 5.30pm start - 6.45pm
Venue: Marconi Lecture Theatre, Kimmeridge House, Bournemouth University, Talbot Campus, Fern Barrow, Poole BH12 5BB
Presented by Sarbkit Kaur Athwal and Dr Clive Driscoll of the True Honor Charity on Honour Based Violence (HBV), Forced Marriages (FM) and Female Genital Mutilation (FGM).
Sarbjit's sister in law was subjected to an honour-based violence murder. Sarjit became the first person within a famile connected with an honour killing to go into open court, waiving her anonymity to break the notion of "shame" that had killed her sister-in-law. Sarbjit will speak about her personal experiences.
She will be supported by Dr Clive Driscoll, formerly a Detective Chief Inspector with the Metropolitan Police, who was the first officer to obtain a conviction in an honour-based violence murder where a body was never found. He also obtained two convictions in the Stephen Lawrence murder case.
This talk is being delivered in partnership with Soroptimist International Bournemouth including QAVS; Dorset Police and the Police and Crime Commissioner Dorset. It is open to staff, students and the wider community.

How to get to BU: Directions, parking & maps
We are committed to sustainable travel and we encourage all our staff, students and visitors to consider alternatives to driving. There are excellent local buses, including our very own UNIBUS which provides a very easy service between our campus locations.
There is no student parking at Talbot Campus, except for pre-approved permit holders. Local council car parking is available in Bournemouth. There are high-frequency buses from the town centre's public parking to Talbot Campus.
If you need to park at Talbot Campus, please contact the department or staff member you are visiting, as pre-booking is essential for all visitor and event parking due to limited availability.
