“Dominic Strauss-Kahn is a powerful global figure who has been accused of a string of sexual offences and is still under investigation for his role in a prostitution ring. By inviting him to speak, the Cambridge Union risks colluding with attitudes that condone or trivialise violence against women. Ironically the event comes one day after International Women’s Day (8th March) when people around the globe will be taking action on sexual and other violence against women.” – Holly Dustin, Director of the End Violence Against Women Coalition
