Queen Mary University Mile End Institute Women’s Peace Congress

Baroness Berridge was invited to speak at a dynamic round-table event at Queen Mary University’s Mile End Institute. The Institute held a series of lectures to mark the centenary of the Women’s Peace Congress entitled ‘Women, Peace and Transnational Activism: A Century on.’ The leading question of the lecture was ‘Are Women’s Rights Human Rights?’

Baroness Berridge’s Comments: ‘In countries where religious leaders have great influence it is important to liaise with these leaders in order to tackle any human rights issues, this way we can influence these populations from within’.
