Students will be given the opportunity to attend a lecture as part of De Montfort University’s recognition of International Women’s Day.
Guest speaker, Diana Nammi, is a former freedom fighter who will be sharing her experiences with students.
This year the International Women’s Day is focusing on the slow development of equality for women in other countries.
Diana Nammi is also the founder of the Iranian and Kurdish
Women’s Rights Organisation (IKWRO). Her talk will focus on her own journey into women’s rights activism from Kurdistan to the UK.
Diana’s activism led to her fleeing Kurdistan as she faced persecution in the country that she lived in.
Her work with IKWRO has lead to the criminalisation of forced marriages in the UK.
The talk will take place tomorrow at 6-7 pm. To book your place email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0116 250 6031.
