The reality for women asylum seekers detained in the UK


As part of the Oxford International Women’s Festival, Dr Juliet Cohen, Head of Doctors at Freedom from Torture, will speak about quality standards of healthcare for torture survivors in detention.

Juliet will be joined by a former detainee at Yarl’s Wood Immigration Removal Centre who will share her personal experience. The Festival, celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, exists to celebrate women’s achievements and solidarity and to highlight local, national and international issues. No admission charge but donations appreciated.
