Workshop on intersectionality and the prevention of violence against women



On the 10th June 2015, MCWH held a training workshop aimed to introduce and explore ideas around intersectionality, power and privilege. Participants came from a diverse network of women’s health services across Victoria, some travelling from as far as the Grampians and Loddon Mallee to attend!

The day-long workshop resulted in passionate and complex conversations that explored the interplay between gender, race, culture,  and immigrant/refugee status in society and how to approach these complex issues structurally and respectfully.

The workshop was a great success, so much so that a secondary workshop was requested by participants which will take place in October 2015.
