Domestic Violence
Domestic violence affects all age groups
from teenagers to older women across Wales;
but what is being done about it?


Minister for Public Services & Rhondda Assembly
Member, Leighton Andrews, will speak about the
Welsh Government's Domestic Violence Act and
look at how it will impact on the lives of women across Wales.
Also speaking on the topic will be the Chief Executive of Welsh
Women's Aid, Eleri Butler, and domestic violence champion and
survivor Rachel Williams, who will share her extraordinary story.
Is this what Welsh women want?
Should 16 year olds have the vote?
Ebun Bola-Shadipe, Cardiff's Community engagement officer for Bite
the Ballot will state her case for reducing the voting age to 16. We will
hear the views of young people and debate whether the right to vote
should be awarded to 16 year olds in Wales.
Is this what young Welsh women want?
There will be an opportunity for comment, questions and debate on
all topics.
