No Excuse for Abuse – Friday 9th March

Through our partnership with Fairplay SW we are hosting a conference on domestic violence and abuse at Kingston Maurward on Friday March 9th

The aim of the conference is to challenge attitudes and behaviors that give rise to sexual violence and perpetrates myths around rape.  There will be a focus on the rights of victims, and ways to access support for those expereincing domestic violence and abuse.

The full programme will be circulated shortly , so make sure you are on our mailing list to receive an invite email : fantasticdorsetwomen@yahoo.co.uk

    I am surprised to see the use of the term ‘bitch’ on you website. Its a derogatory term used for a woman often by a man and often in a domestic violence situation. The term refers to a female dog.

      Hello Ginny,

      We did send round a newsletter about this – there have been lots of ‘stich and bitch ‘ sessions set up – so it is a play on words, and using the term in a positive manner , rather than a negative one/

      The sessions, which cover all crafts have been very well attended, and attracted women we hadn’t met before, that had never attanded any WAND events,
