Schools and Lectures Programme

Making Herstory believes the key to ending violence against women and girls
is working to prevent it from occurring in the first place.

We believe boys and girls from primary school age right through to men and women of all ages and working in every profession need to:

  1. UNDERSTAND the core principles of our equal human rights.
  2. BE MADE AWARE of the root causes of gender-based violence.
  3. BE GIVEN THE KNOWLEDGE THEY NEED to tackle, confront and put an end to all forms of abuse perpetrated against women and girls wherever possible.

To fulfil this goal, Making Herstory undertakes:

  1. Presentation and speaking engagements at schools (primary and secondary), colleges and universities.
  2. Consultations with local authorities, schools and partnering charities on creating, developing and expanding anti-Domestic Violence and Abuse (DVA) education tools.
  3. Works with theatrical companies such as Facefront Inclusive Theatre and the Komola Collective to highlight the impact of domestic violence and misogyny upon children and families to wider audiences including schools, corporate organisations, charity bodies and core agencies.
