Retaining the Passion: Violence Against Women – But Nothing Really Happened.

WARNING: This episode may be potentially emotional or triggering for some of our listeners. Please take care of yourself first and foremost and reach out for help should you need it. 

First, Clare and Craig catch up and Craig reveals some exciting news about his new job role as a community staff nurse in the Asylum Bridging Health Team. Next, they discuss their reasoning for choosing the theme, “Violence Against Women – But Nothing Really Happened”. 

Together, Clare and Craig interview two fabulous guests, both from the RCN’s Feminist Network. Firstly, Lou Cahill, a registered adult nurse, and clinical coordinator at a mass vaccination centre. Lou is a passionate advocate for the rights of sex workers and highlights some of the issues these women face in society. 

Next, our hosts speak to Leanne Patrick, a registered mental health nurse, and a specialist gender-based violence nurse. Leanne educates us as to what this role entails and discusses amongst many things the need to address misogyny, both as nurses in the workplace but also in society and online. Clare and Craig then reflect on these discussions and what we as a society and a profession can do to tackle violence against women.
