According to psychologists, shame is one of the most destructive emotions in the human kitbag. It has been used for centuries to control the behaviour of women and girls, and people who do not conform to society’s gender expectations. This panel discusses how we can lift the burden of shame. Speakers include author and advocate Jasvinder Sanghera founder of UK charity Karma Nirvana that supports both men and women affected by honour based abuse and forced marriages, award winning Australian author and campaigner Jane Caro and First Nation arts leader Lee-Ann Tjunypa Buckskin contributor to Jane’s 2017 publication ‘Unbreakable’. Facilitated by Director of Grace Street Consulting Balveen Ajimal.
