About this Event
Every year, we bring together a diverse group of lawyers, judges, politicians, campaigners and academics to explore what more the law can do for women and girls.
Our panel discussions will include the protests in Iran, pregnancy and births behind bars, women as legal changemakers.
Our guest speakers include Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe, Richard Ratcliffe, Elika Ashoori, Anoosheh Ashoori, Stella Creasey MP, playwright Gurpreet Kaur Bhatti, Helena Kennedy KC and more to be announced. We will have entertainment from Ayomide Sotubo (lawyer & spoken work poet).
We hope you can join us for what promises to be an inspiring and action-packed day. The event will be taking place on a hybrid basis, with tickets available to attend in person and online. There is a limited number of places for in-person attendance, and the ticket price includes catering and a drinks reception following the event.
This year Doughty Street Chambers is supporting Tender as our selected charity for IWD 2023. Tender is an arts charity working with children and young people to protect against domestic abuse and sexual violence. Doughty Street Chambers is making a donation directly to Tender but as IWD is a not-for-profit event and donation capacity is limited, we invite those attending to consider making even a small donation to support Tender and the continuation of their hugely Important work. Any donations can be made to Tender directly here.
We will have a crèche service available on the day, at no additional charge, but advance booking is required.
In order for us to arrange the appropriate level of support from the provider, Jumping Stars, please help us by letting us know how many of your children will attend the crèche, and their ages and any special needs, by completing the survey form once you place your order.
The full agenda, speaker list and further details will be published shortly.
We hope to see you on 4 March 2023.
