Forensic Science Against Gender-Based Violence
28/11/2022 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm AWST
Violence against women and girls is a serious issue across Australia. For this reason, the ANZFSS (WA Branch) is pleased to be partnering with WA Museum Boola Bardip (WAM) to support the “16 Days in WA” 2022 campaign against gender-based violence.
The Branch is participating in the campaign by hosting a showcase of the contributions of forensic science in Western Australia to tackling gender-based violence. This coincides with the ‘Red Shoes‘ exhibit to be installed at WAM, in which citizens of Perth will be asked to donate red pairs of shoes filled in with messages of hope, solidarity, or testimonies.
Join us at from 10 am – 12 pm, Monday 28th November at WAM Woodside Learning Studios to hear first-hand about the current forensic research and practices in Western Australia helping to combat violence against women, and become part of the movement for change. The event will feature short presentations from several local forensic practitioners, researchers and police, followed by a Q&A panel.
Places for this event are strictly limited. Registration includes a catered morning tea sponsored by the ANZFSS WA Branch. All ticket fees from this event will be donated to the Sexual Assault Resource Centre to further support action against gender-based violence.
