@PayzeeMalika @haloprojectuk @IKWRO As a victim of HBA it amazes how scared org are inc domestic abuse charities to talk to you about the subject. Easier for them to wash their hands of you rather than gain an understanding of what you are trying to say. Even after all these years there is still along way to go 🙏
Whilst some are debating whether the reference made to “honour” is relevant, tens of thousands of victims are suffering, this report and ones before urge us to take action. You either get it or you don’t #hbv #recording @Hopetraining @HARMnetwork @IKWRO @PayzeeMalika @docadisa
📎New FOI report on UK police recording of 'honour' abuse + specialised training

‘In the 15 years since Banaz’s tragic murder, and 2 years until the men who murdered her are eligible for parole, it is disconcerting that there are STILL no reliable baseline data on incidents of HBA/V or specialised training of frontline staff.’
A very timelyreport. @IKWRO
Dearest Simin, it’s such shocking news that you have left us; but our beautiful memories of you will stay with us forever. You were a fantastic teacher and mentor in helping me to set up and run IKWRO. You were with us through all the steps. I miss you dearly.🌹🌹🌹@IKWRO
It is with a heavy heart we share the news of losing an incredible person, Simin who was a very dear friend and colleague of ours at IKWRO.
We are grateful to have worked along side Simin & had her support for many years.
We will miss you Simin.

Worth following all of them.
The work that @PayzeeMalika & @IKWRO do is beyond inspiring.
You should check them out.
The pandemic has left many feeling isolated, but for victims of forced marriage, it has left them feeling almost invisible to authorities.
Charities warn hundreds of cases may have gone undetected, with some victims trapped at home with their abusers...
Fantastic to see that child marriage is now illegal in the Dominican Republic! There is much work to do to change patriarchal mindsets and create real life opportunities for girls, but this is an important step - time for the UK to follow suit. @IKWRO
A real privilege to get a #HOPE calendar delivered to my house. @Hopetraining you are a star 🌟 I absolutely love it & this work that features so many women I admire @docadisa, @HiboWardere, Ngozi - @Sistah_Space @natashamanota, Diana - @IKWRO & many more ❤️
@SophieRunning @GraziaUK I've been working with @SarahChampionMP, @KNFMHBV, @IKWRO and others to end child marriage in the UK. The campaign attracted a lot of publicity late last year and could really benefit from Grazia's attention. Let me know if this would interest you!
