The booking deadline for this event has passed. If you would like to attend, please email info@engender.org.uk.

Engender has been working to explore women’s experience of sectarianism, and women’s role in replicating intra-Christian sectarianism in Scotland. As part of this work, three young women, Gaby Renehan, Lorraine Monaghan and Najma Abukar were selected to take part in a film project. Working with Urbancroft Films based in Glasgow, the young women were given training and support to enable them to contact and interview a range of participants.

We are delighted to invite you to a screening of their film at the Glasgow Film Theatre. Following the film there will be a chance to hear from the young women themselves, as well as journalist Angela Haggerty who features in the film and has been a victim of sectarian-based abuse.

For those who want to find out more about the wider project, we will be holding a meeting at The Renfield St Stephen Centre from 10am - 11.30am and then walking over to the Glasgow Film Theatre together.

This will be chance to explore the need for a gendered approach to tackling sectarianism, and test current projects and initiatives against our toolkit. Speakers will include Emma Ritch, Executive Director of Engender, Rachel Thain-Grey of the Glasgow Women’s Library, and Sarah Robinson of YouthLink Scotland.

Breakfast will be provided. There will be an option to register for this event on the booking page.
