Come, borrow a “living book” and get into dialogue about gender-based violence (GBV)!

During this event various GBV topics would be discussed through a live interaction with books. The books will be represented by various individuals tackling GBV. They would be either expert practitioners, academics or students reflecting their own backgrounds.

Meet these living books and hear their story!
