This week saw the start of our partnership with a Sixth form for the 2022 Longford lecture. Scholars Kyle (finishing a maths degree) & Warren (sociology at LSE) have important insights for students on prisons & prisons reform. Thank you for such a warm welcome to all of us! 1/2
Many thanks to the @LongfordTrust for visiting us today and to the scholars for sharing their incredible stories and wise observations. We look forward to our students partnering with you over the next year. Truly inspirational work 👏👏👏

Today a room full of men decided to force all women in Afghanistan to cover every part of their body, including face, with burqas in public. And that they should not leave home at *all* without a legitimate reason for doing so. Viciously misogynistic, heartbreaking news.
