About the event

Join us for our first online event hosted by the broadcaster and presenter Emma Barnett.

Lockdown Unmasked will be an unmissable evening with Emma Barnett in conversation with bestselling author Noreena Hertz and Designate Domestic Abuse Commissioner, Nicole Jacobs.

Since March, Jewish Women’s Aid has responded to a continued and significant increase in the need for our services, both in terms of the number of women and children affected by domestic abuse and their specific needs due to Covid-19 and the resulting lockdown.

Please join us at this free event to find out more, and hear unique insights from our guest speakers.
