Recovering from torture doesn’t happen overnight. Freedom from Torture does vital work with survivors of torture who arrive in the UK. Creative writing is one of the therapeutic services available in centres around the country. One hundred years ago, the first British women won the right to vote, today’s readings from Freedom from Torture clients reflect on the value of sisterhood for women standing up for their rights. Chaired by Moira Dunworth.

Authors Reading: Lin Anderson, Mary Lynn Bracht, Sue Purkiss and Antti Tuomainen
