16 Days of Activism against GBV

I’m looking forward to chairing this discussion next Wednesday evening in the Teacher’s Club. I’m a big fan of Comhlamh’s first Wednesday debates, which bring together very mixed groups of people for really smart, engaged discussion. Hopefully this will be as good as others I’ve attended.

My first attempt at describing my research approach was hosted by the tremendous research blog womenareboring. In which I explore why stigma matters for understanding gender based violence. This is an early iteration, and I’ll update it regularly.
