The WRAP #37: Contraception, self-reflection and 60 seconds with Maria Osman

What a busy and exciting month October has been!

We’re drawing closer to the sticky end of the year and can feel the business and momentum building! Our highlight this month was holding our annual Strategic Planning Summit to look ahead to what 2016-2020 has in store for MCWH. The two-day summit was an inspiring, creative and positive experience, and we’re so excited about what we can achieve in the future.

Inspired by Back To The Future Day, we also look back-to-the-future this month and reflect on how we can tap into the power of our 13 year old selves to make changes for the better.

Next month we’re also hosting a panel discussion presented by a selection of key critical thinkers, including writer Ruby Hamad, Executive Director of the Australian Muslim Women’s Centre for Human Rights, Joumanah El Matrah, and others. The panel will address the connections between men’s violence against women, culture and migrant/refugee communities and will suggest the ways that thinking more critically about cultural, structural and gendered systems will lead to more effective pathways to eliminate violence against women. We invite you all to join us.

Until next time,
The WRAP Team
