We held the prize ceremony for the 2016 EHMP awards at Garden Court Chambers on the 6th of April 2017.
Many thanks to Garden Court for hosting us, to the young women who gave an amazing performance of Adrian Howe’s play Othello on Trial, and to all of you who came to support our amazing nominees.
This year the individual prize was awarded jointly to Shakila Maan, advocacy manager at Southall Black Sisters, and Houzan Mahmoud, a campaigner for Kurdish and Iraqi women’s rights.
The group prize went to Safety 4 Sisters Northwest, who campaign around the rights of migrant women.
Thank you to all the women who came to our awards ceremony at the Feminism in London conference on the 25th of October, and thank you to all our amazing nominees!
This year we received such amazing nominations that the judges decided to give two individual awards – one to Gabriella Gillespie, author of A Father’s Betrayal and one to Cath Elliot, a trade unionist and journalist whose writing focuses on male violence against women.
The group award went to Million Women Rise, a small collective of women who organise Europe’s biggest march to end male violence against women.
A special award was also given to Denise Marshall, the former CEO of Eaves and extraordinary feminist, who passed away on the 21st of August this year. The award was accepted on her behalf by her partner Lisa Alabaksh.
We’d also like to thank the Feminism in London organisers for hosting us at their conference again this year.
