Seminar Marks Start of Successful Campaign

Forced marriage was the main focus of the opening event of this year’s Forth Valley 16 Days of Action Campaign.


Organised by the Clackmannanshire Violence against Women Partnership, Stirling Action for Change, the Joint Clackmannanshire and Stirling Child Protection Committee in association with Forth Valley College, the free event took place in the Stirling Campus’ Kildean Suite on 26 November from 1.30-4.30pm.
Fully titled: Forced Marriage – Understanding the Issues, the well-attended seminar raised awareness of forced marriage and what the response to it should be in the Forth Valley area. 

A range of speakers including Bruce Sutherland from the Scottish Government’s Gender, LGBT Equality & Violence against Women Team and Rajni Pandher from Hemat Gryffe Women's Aid took the floor on the day and there was also a performance of 'The Diaries' by the actor Shabana Bakhsh.
