Lord Bhikhu Parekh and Lord Herman Ouseley invite you to a panel discussion of the launch of the publication – ‘Cohesion, Faith and Gender’ By Southall Black Sisters.
The report is based on a pilot study conducted by Southall Black Sisters (SBS) with support from Oxfam (GB.) It examines the impact of the government’s ‘cohesion’ and ‘faith – based’ approach on vulnerable black and minority women in Ealing. The panel of speakers will discuss the findings of the report against the background of the previous and present government’s flagship policies on ‘Cohesion’ and the ‘Big Society’ and their implications for equality and racial and gender justice.
