Concluding thoughts

Roisin and Anni close the course with a 'thank you' message
So over the last six weeks, we’ve considered a large amount of material, covering many important aspects of the whole issue of violence against women. We’ve learned about gender, power, and violence, and how they intersect in the various forms of violence against women. And also we’ve been exploring some quite complex frameworks and concepts to help you to explore the issue of violence against women. And they have helped us to explain why it happens, who is most affected, and who’s mainly responsible. We’re very grateful for all of your contributions. Thank you so much for them. Please remember to continue to take care of yourself. The issues that we’ve raised have resonance for probably every one of us who’ve taken the course.
So many thanks, again. We hope you have enjoyed it.

Over the last six weeks, we have considered a large amount of material covering many important aspects of the whole issue of violence against women.

We have two final questions for you to consider and discuss.

  • How do you now regard the links between gender inequality and violence against women after having completed the course?
  • Will your learning on the course help you to play a part in preventing violence against women? If so, what would that involve?

Thanks for all your contributions. We hope you have enjoyed the course!
