Concluding thoughts

Roisin and Anni close the course with a 'thank you' message

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!
