Learning Journey #1 (OYO): The Francis Crick Institute "Deconstructing Patterns: Art + Science in Conversation"
Learning Journey #1 (OYO) On Your Own:
The Francis Crick Institute "Deconstructing Patterns: Art + Science in Conversation"

Arriving early in London? 
Join FWN 'early birds' at The Francis Crick Institute, a one-minute walk from the St. Pancras Renaissance London hotel, for a leisurely lunch at the Café....and then we sashay over to view the "Deconstructing Patterns: Art + Science in Conversation" exhibition.

Meet FWN Board Members at entrance of St. Pancras starting at 11:45am to 12:15pm.

Art and science in conversation at the Francis Crick Institute. The natural world is made up of patterns. Many we can see with the naked eye, but others only exist at cellular and molecular levels. This stunning new exhibition at the Crick delves into the extraordinary world of microscopic patterns.

Presented over three ‘zones’, the exhibition explores intricate patterns studied at the Crick, each one interpreted by a specially-commissioned artist. The displays take the form of a poetry and soundscape piece by Sarah Howe and Chu-Li Shewring, a sculpture and film by Helen Pynor and a film created by the young filmmaking group, KaleiKo.

By taking patterns apart, both the artists and scientists are seeking new insights into the beauty and complexity of the human body.

“Disrupting patterns helps unravel the mystery of how they are formed in the first place”.
– Katherine Exelby, Developmental Dynamics Laboratory

Marvel at the iconic sculpture as you enter the Crick. Paradigm, by artist Conrad Shawcross, is one of the tallest public sculptures in central London.  At an imposing 14 metres, it comprises of a twisting stack of tetrahedra that grow in size. The work is a feat of engineering. Thomas Kuhn's theory of the 'paradigm shift' provided a starting point for Shawcross' work for the Crick. Kuhn, an American philosopher of science, believed that scientific advancement does not progress in a seamless linear fashion, but rather through massive shifts that lead to breakthroughs, which change the course of thought, comprehension and application.

Paradigm provides a metaphor for potential: to grow; to advance; to discover. Its majestic form embodies boldness and courage while the material it is constructed from (weathering steel) gives a respectful nod to the industrial heritage of the area.

About:
The Francis Crick Institute is a biomedical discovery institute that opened in 2016, this state-of-the art research lab is dedicated to understanding the fundamental biology underlying health and disease. Its work is helping to understand why disease develops and to translate discoveries into new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat illnesses such as cancer, heart disease, stroke, infections, and neurodegenerative diseases. The Crick is an award-winning building designed by architects HOK with PLP Architecture. Architecturally, there are strong links between the new institute and the historic buildings in the local St. Pancras and Kings Cross areas. Both the masonry and the distinctive vaulted roof recall features of the adjacent St Pancras International station.

Remarkable British women: 6 top facts
The women who changed British history, by fighting for the vote and dedicating their lives to a noble yet dangerous cause. Did you know?
  • Writer Mary Wollstonecraft has been called The Mother of Feminism. She was also the mother of Mary Shelley, the author of Frankenstein.
  • The first woman to vote in a parliamentary election in Britain was the Manchester shopkeeper Lily Maxwell in 1867. Her name was on the voters’ register as a ratepayer and she was cheered at the polling station. This loophole was quickly closed.
  • Not all women supported the vote. The ‘Anti- Suffrage League’ said: “We believe in the division of functions as the keystone of civilisation”.
  • Women also wanted freedom from their corsets and advocated bloomers and unlaced underwear. Many suffragettes were keen cyclists, believing it was “a woman’s right to dress for an activity”.
  • Millicent Fawcett’s National Union of Women’s Suffrage Societies is now The Fawcett Society, which continues to campaign for women.

Learning Journey #3: Palace of Westminster: VIEW the "Voice and Vote: Women's Place in Parliament" Exhibition
After the DISRUPT 3.0 Book Reveal and Reading, we will walk over to the Voice & Vote Exhibition.

  • 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM - 80 Tickets available to view the Voice and Vote Exhibition
  • 11:30 AM - 12:00 PM - Suffragette Talks (you may leave the V&V exhibition to join the Talks and return to the V&V after)
  • 12:00 PM - 12:45 PM Lunch on your own. Try the Jubilee Cafe. Visit the Parliament Shop for souvenirs!
Suffragette Talks when Parliament is sitting During this talk our Visitor Assistants highlight the militant campaign conducted by members of  the Women's Social and Political Union (WSPU - motto 'Deeds not words') and the Women's Freedom League (WFL), and how their actions impacted Parliament.

In 1908 the WSPU urged the public to join them in an attempted 'rush' on Parliament. About 60,000 people gathered but the police cordon held fast. In the same year, three WFL members unfurled a banner from the Ladies' Gallery into the Commons Chamber.  

Voice & Vote: Women's Place in Parliament exhibition - 80 tickets!
Westminster exhibition charts 100 years of women's suffrage. Curators spent four years collecting items to trace history of equality fight.

This exhibition is so fitting as FWN celebrates its 15th year of empowering Filipina women worldwide.

Maria Miller, the chair of the women and equalities committee, said: “This exhibition is not just about equality, and the anniversary of some women gaining the right to vote, it’s about women’s right to stand for election, to sit in the House of Lords … It’s about what still needs to be done.”

Fewer women have been elected to parliament than there are MPs in any one parliament (650). And in the thousand years of its history, there were always more male MPs in the House of Commons at any one time than the number of women MPs who had ever been elected, until Caroline Johnson won a by-election on 8 December 2016, 98 years after the first female MP.

At one end of the exhibition in Westminster Hall – one of the central points of the suffragettes’ campaign – are the doors where Alice Hawkins was arrested in 1909 for disorderly conduct and resisting the police. Her bail warrant is also on display.

What’s in the Voice & Vote exhibition?
Throughout the exhibition, rare and previously unseen historic objects, pictures and archives from the Parliamentary collections will be on show. Together with immersive and interactive technologies, the exhibition will tell the story of women in Parliament, the campaigning, the protests and the achievements. It will also examine where we are today and how you can make change happen. Featuring:
Immersive spaces
The Ventilator
The Cage

Learning Journey #4: Designer Maker User: The Story of Contemporary Design
FWN Shuttle: Meet at the bus stop on Abingdon Street (Stop L). See map below.  Shuttle leaves  at 1:00 pm promptly.  Board shuttle where you were dropped off.


Design is everywhere - good, bad or indifferent. Good design improves the quality of our lives and solves problems, while bad design can make these problems worse or damage our environment, so we need to take it seriously, as well as enjoy it.

Designer Maker User features almost 1000 items of twentieth and twenty-first century design viewed through the angles of the designer, manufacturer and user, including a crowdsourced wall. The exhibition covers a broad range of design disciplines, from architecture and engineering, to the digital world, fashion and graphics. Designer Maker User features a bold, colourful and engaging display designed by Studio Myerscough, with digital interactives by Studio Kin.

The ‘Designer’ segment of the exhibition is based on the phrase by the Italian architect Ernesto Rogers: from the spoon to the city. It explores the ways in which the thought-process of the designer informs projects at every scale, from the smallest to the largest. David Mellor’s traffic light, Kinneir and Calvert’s British road signage system and a 1:1 scale prototype for the new London tube train designed by PriestmanGoode will be on show.

In the ‘Maker’ section, the exhibition traces the evolution of manufacturing, from Thonet bentwood cafe chairs and Model T Ford cars to robotic arms, mass customisation and 3D printing. Everyday objects such as tennis balls as well as notable designs including the London 2012 Olympic Torch are presented at different stages of production.

A display on the ‘User’ explores the interaction between people and brands that have come to define the modern world. Features include a vinyl player from Dieter Rams, landmark pieces from Sony including the Walkman and the Minidisc, the Apple iPhone and the Olivetti Valentine typewriter; all demonstrating how design has changed how we communicate.

Summit Weavers 1: Kwentuhan•Kababaihan: Learning Journeys RECAP - Future Thinking IMPACT
RECAP: Learning Journeys
Future Thinking IMPACT


"A desk is a dangerous place from which to view the world."--John LeCarre

How are we doing?
1) Have you Buddy'd up with a fellow awardee to deepen friendships?
2) Sit with your Award Groups to discuss the Learning Journeys and then Report Back to the big group.
3) What Future Thinking captures your imagination?

Summit Weavers Recap and Reports: business observations, fact-finding mission results, and long-range implications of these economies. The Learning Journeys developed for the Customers of the Future meeting offer a rich array of experiences, company visits, and conversations emblematic of changing customer relationships and the new (or transformed) business models emerging in response.

We will explore the question -
Has the customer changed, or is it our understanding of the customer that has changed? -- Chris Riley, Wieden & Kennedy

We'll have a first-hand look at the customers, producers, and purveyors of the future which will set the stage for subsequent conversations designed to deepen our understanding of the causes, manifestations, and implications of changing customer relationships. Among the topics we will discuss in small groups: the future of brands, value webs, global youth, the particularity of desire, the digital divide, and why companies still don’t get it!

Who will be the “customers of the future?” What will they want? And how will businesses construct relationships with them that are satisfying, meaningful, and ultimately profitable?

Attendees will be divided into groups. Each group will explore one of the following discussion topics during the Learning Journey and report their findings at the end of the day, when we gather for dinner:
  1. Changing customer relationships - 
  2. New realities and most compelling hypotheses about the customer of the future -
  3. Most compelling changes and corporate tools for capitalizing on opportunities - 
  4. Key insights about emergent changes, their significance, and the implications for  companies. - 
We will create a Learning Wall & Individual Reflections
The Learning Wall will showcase photos, quotes, and other artifacts gathered during the day’s learning journeys. Participants will share their personal observations.


==================
Dress Code: Business Casual. Wear comfortable walking shoes. Bring a change of clothes in case you want to freshen up at one of our stops during our Learning Journey.

FWN Members Meeting: Developing your Circle of Influence and MOU Signing with SunStar
Maximizing Your Investment in Attending the Filipina Summit

Summit Weavers: 
Susie Quesada, Maria Beebe, Marily Mondejar and all FWN Board Members to assist

Get a head start with developing your Circle of Influence and how to maximize your investment in your career portfolio.

Meet the FWN Board, Summit Steering Committee, Summit Staff and fellow Awardees.
  1. Buddy up with a fellow a fellow awardee to deepen friendships.  
  2. FWN Summit Schedule Updates, if any.
  3. We will divide you into Action Teams for the Learning Journeys, Action Discussions and then Report Backs
  4. We will review with you the Pinay Power 2020 Vision and start planning for our Pinay Power 2020 Reunion. We invite you to join this prestigious committe.

The Board, FWN Selection Committee and the FWN Summit Steering Committee have spent a lot of time in bringing together the women who create change and disrupt the status quo in communities and organizations all over the world.

At the summit, you will experience a change.  You will meet Filipina women colleagues from 12 countries.  You will be exposed to new information, new approaches to ideas, and to new friends.

Imagine how this will influence your business, your career, and your personal life.  

The summit is led by your peers: community leaders, industry experts, entrepreneurs and practitioners.  The sessions are designed to reflect on our heritage as women of color, improve career and business competencies and capacities for leadership effectiveness—thinking strategically, acting decisively, and influencing others.  We hope that the speakers will be able to help in your life and career journeys, restart your thought processes and expand thinking.  


The summit is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for Filipina women leaders selected for the 2018 Global FWN100™ Awards to be together in one place. This configuration, this composition of personalities together in London, United Kingdom, and the places we'll be visiting, the events we'll be celebrating will never happen again.

We all know that networking is important and we invest in ourselves so we can meet those who can belong to our circle of influence. Travelling to London, England is about connecting with each other and supporting each other. To succeed in today's world, it’s not only about what you know, it’s who you know and how you have developed and nurtured relationships with. This is the secret of professional and business success.

By the time you leave the summit, you will be part of a powerful network of Filipina women who through FWN are helping each other succeed.   We hope that you maximize this opportunity to get to know each other.

FINALLY, we would like you to bring one item: An item, a symbol, a totem or any artifact that represents you as an individual, to be shared with others as we begin the summit on Friday morning, 14 September during the Developing Your Circle of Influence Plenary.

LASTLY -
Please Facebook, Instagram and Tweet that you are a Filipina Influential, attending the 15th Filipina Leadership Global Summit in London with fellow Filipina influentials from 12 countries! If you’re a speaker, indicate the session topic so your fellow delegates are aware of your involvement.

Provocative Conversations: SUCCESS. SIGNIFICANCE. RELEVANCE. in Future Thinking: the urgency of using our success collectively for social, economic, and political change

Provocative Conversations: SUCCESS. SIGNIFICANCE. RELEVANCE. in Future Thinking. The urgency of using our success collectively for social, economic, and political change
The 2018 Filipina Summit theme speaks to the urgency of using collectively the success achieved by each awardee in their professional lives by collaborating with FWN in developing new paradigms for significant actions that are relevant to today’s society. These are the questions to ponder.

SUCCESS: your leadership story.

SIGNIFICANCE: amplifying your influence; publicly supporting or suggesting an idea, a development, or a way of doing something.

RELEVANCE: being connected; the degree to which something is related or useful to what is happening or being talked about or important to today's issues: the impression made by an idea, cultural movement, social group; meaning roughly 'relevance to social concerns', such as racial equality, gender equality, equal pay, poverty, social justice, world hunger, world economic development.

Fear and shame are barriers to success according to Dominique Moisi, author of The Geopolitics of Emotion - culture of fear
- culture of humiliation
- culture of hope
These cultures are reshaping the world. Power, Money and Culture

The gepolitics of diaspora: issues of diaspora and hybridity, both within geography and in cultural studies tend to celebrate the potential of the hybrid and diasporic to transcend essentialist notions of identity and subjectivity. Sean Carter argues that these approaches often fail to pay sufficient attention to two particular aspects of the diaspora experience: firstly, the geographical specificities of particular diasporas, and secondly, the ways in which essentialist modes of being are often reproduced within diasporic discourse.

How can FWN reposition its advocacy for social, economic and political change? How can FWN  Members maintain its relevance as the world is rapidly turning? How can FWN and its Members become major players in future thinking?

  • Michelle Dela Cruz Marquez, Procurement Associate, ExxonMobil, CZECH REPUBLIC [Secondary Economic Sector: Energy Utilities].

FORMAT:  Co-Moderators will ask each conversationalist to state her thoughts on the theme for 2 minutes.

DISCUSSION FORMAT:  Filipina Women's Network uses a fishbowl discussion format ala "The View" U.S. television program.  Instead of speaking directly to the audience, we encourage speakers to have a "conversation" among themselves with the audience "listening in".  A volunteer will collect audience questions on index cards and will hand these questions to the Moderator so they can be incorporated into the conversation.  We have found the fishbowl to be fun, engaging, and does not disrupt the conversation flow as well as being time efficient especially in managing duplicate questions.

Conversationalists are encouraged to look outside the traditional world of work and business and at the broader issues and external forces (STEEP: social, technological, economic, environmental, political) that influence the workplace and the Filipino worldwide community today and its impact in the next ten years. Looking to the future, outside-in thinking. The Moderator/s will reserve 10 minutes of the allotted time so attendees will be able to synthesize the issues and/or comments raised by the conversationalists and can have a discussion among themselves. We will then ask each group to voluntarily report back with a 1-2 minute Action Statement if there's time.

AUDIENCE ACTION: Group conversations on issues raised by the speakers. Strategies and actions? 2 minutes for each Group Report.
  • What’s one key take-away? Why?

The “Make Me a Filipina Millionaire” is a signature FWN women entrepreneurship thought leadership session focused on the business side of the quintessential Pinay. Filipina Millionaires who have shared their stories in previous sessions include Loida Nicolas Lewis, Angelica Berrie, Maria Banatao, Sherri Burke, Lita Abele, Nimfa Gamez, Cora Alisuag, Dr. Tess Mauricio, and others in finance, real estate, healthcare, personal services and manufacturing.

Are our Filipina women entrepreneurs business disrupters or sustainers? Our millionaires will engage in a bold conversation on becoming millionaires, how they did it, sustain it and own their success without the guilt yet sharing their prosperity with those who need it. Attendees will leave the session feeling proud of our Filipina sisters who took action on their ideas.

• A disruptive innovation helps create a new market and value network which eventually disrupts an existing market and value network (over a few years or decades), displacing an earlier technology, product or service. The term is used in business and technology literature to describe innovations that improve a product or service in ways that the market does not expect, typically first by designing for a different set of consumers in a new market and later by lowering prices in the existing market. (E.g., the lower priced Ford Model T or the iPhone)

• In contrast, a sustaining innovation does not create new markets or value networks but rather only evolves existing ones with better value allowing firms within a market to compete against each other's sustaining improvements.

SESSION DESCRIPTION: The Conversation will begin with a moderator’s overview of what entrepreneurial legacy means, how Filipina women entrepreneurs create change through their businesses, the roles they play in the workplace, and how they have created a global imprint.

As Asian entrepreneurs extend their international reach, the next chapter is the rise of Asian women businesses and brands. As the benefits of branding grow ever-more clear,Asian companies are investing heavily in strengthening their brand equity. Brand development not only poses difficult challenges for Asian-owned firms, but has a potentially huge impact on consumer choice in the U.S. and worldwide. For many Asian companies looking to expand their reach, brand equity is the new must-have asset.

The selected speakers will provide their perspectives on ANY of the following suggested questions:
  • How did you reach your first million (in your currency? How do you sustain it?
  • What inspired you to start your business? What’s your business legacy? What’s your  market reach? 
  • What’s your business brand? How do you strengthen your brand equity? What’s your global imprint?
  • What’s one memorable challenge and how did you solve it?
  • What’s one success you’re proud of and how did you make it happen?
  • How would you differentiate your path to success from your fellow entrepreneurs?
  • Do gender and cultural diversity play a role in your successes and pains? If so, how? If not, why not?
  • Identify one most important resource or factor that gave you the most advantage or disadvantage in setting up and sustaining your business or practice.
  • Did you have a femtor; a sponsor? What’s one memorable advice you received?
  • How do you share your prosperity?
  • How will you inspire new Filipina entrepreneurs today? 
  • If you had to do it again, what would one thing you would do differently? What’s the future for you?
  • How would you like FWN partner with you?

DISCUSSION FORMAT:  Filipina Women's Network uses a fishbowl discussion format ala "The View" U.S. television program.  Instead of speaking directly to the audience, we encourage speakers to have a "conversation" among themselves with the audience "listening in".  A volunteer will collect audience questions on index cards and will hand these questions to the Moderator so they can be incorporated into the conversation.  We have found the fishbowl to be fun, engaging, and does not disrupt the conversation flow as well as being time efficient especially in managing duplicate questions.
Conversationalists are encouraged to look outside the traditional world of work and business and at the broader issues and external forces (STEEP: social, technological, economic, environmental, political) that influence the workplace and the Filipino worldwide community today and its impact in the next ten years. Looking to the future, outside-in thinking. The Moderator/s will reserve 10 minutes of the allotted time so attendees will be able to synthesize the issues and/or comments raised by the conversationalists and can have a discussion among themselves. We will then ask each group to voluntarily report back with a 1-2 minute Action Statement if there's time.

AUDIENCE ACTION: Group conversations on issues raised by the speakers. Strategies and actions? 2 minutes for each Group Report.
  • What’s one key take-away? Why?

Influential Pinays: Make Me A Filipina CEO: Biggest Challenges and Trends for Filipina Women CEOs in 2018
Influential Pinays: Make Me A Filipina CEO: Biggest Challenges and Trends for Filipina Women CEOs in 2018

It's not all roses being a CEO or in a senior managing position of a large company. Life today is fast paced, technology rules, political changes impact profitability, labor and hiring practices need to adjust to new behaviors of the global workforce.

How do Pinay CEOs lead? How does diverse markets drive the corporate bottom line? What keeps them awake at night? How do they meet these challenges head-on? What are the business and workplace trends do they see in the horizon? How do they prepare for these trends so not to be blindsided? Do CEOs have a support network for advice, venting and learning.

An informal Kwentuhan (story telling) session (a la "The View") among kindred spirits of how being bi-cultural is both a challenge and an advantage in the global workplace.

Panelists are corporate executives of large organizations they manage and are 100 Most Influential Filipina Women in the World (Global100) Awardees.

SESSION DESCRIPTION: The Conversation will begin with a moderator’s overview of what CEOs and senior management do, how Filipina women leaders create change through their businesses, the roles they play in the global workplace, and how they have created their own global imprint.

Our speakers will engage in a bold conversation on what it’s like to be a Filipina woman leader in business today.

Attendees will leave the session feeling proud of our Filipina sisters who take action every day.

GLOBAL IMPACT: How FWN is Transforming the World: Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
Global Impact: How FWN is Transforming the World - the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

As a network, FWN’s vision aligns to SDG 5 - Gender Equality. While the Philippines, the US, and other countries where Filipina women are present have achieved progress towards gender equality and women’s empowerment under the Millennium Development Goals (including equal access to primary education between girls and boys), women and girls all over the world continue to suffer discrimination and violence.

Consistent with the UN SDG 5 agenda, FWN recognizes that “Gender Equality is not only a fundamental human right, but a necessary foundation for a peaceful, prosperous and sustainable world” and that “providing women and girls with equal access to education, health care, decent work, and representation in political and economic decision-making processes will fuel sustainable economies and benefit societies and humanity at large.”

This speaker panel will highlight how FWN members and their organizations have contributed to one of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), including SDG 5 - Gender Equality and its targets. The panel discussion will start with an introduction of the SDGs. Then each panelist will have 5 minutes to provide an overview of the global problem and how her organization is contributing to a specific SDG and its targets.

The SDG 5 agenda targets, as per the UN website, (http://www.un.org/sustainabledevelopment/sustainable-development-goals/) are:

  • End all forms of discrimination against all women and girls everywhere
  • Eliminate all forms of violence against all women and girls in the public and private spheres, including trafficking and sexual and other types of exploitation
  • Eliminate all harmful practices, such as child, early and forced marriage and female genital mutilation
  • Recognize and value unpaid care and domestic work through the provision of public services, infrastructure and social protection policies and the promotion of shared responsibility within the household and the family as nationally appropriate
  • Ensure women’s full and effective participation and equal opportunities for leadership at all levels of decision-making in political, economic and public life
  • Ensure universal access to sexual and reproductive health and reproductive rights as agreed in accordance with the Program of Action of the International Conference on Population and Development and the Beijing Platform for Action and the outcome documents of their review conferences
  • Undertake reforms to give women equal rights to economic resources, as well as access to ownership and control over land and other forms of property, financial services, inheritance and natural resources, in accordance with national laws
  • Enhance the use of enabling technology, in particular information and communications technology, to promote the empowerment of women
  • Adopt and strengthen sound policies and enforceable legislation for the promotion of gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls at all levels

DESCRIPTION:
Since 2003, Filipina Women's Network has convened the production of The Vagina Monologues to raise awareness and help STOP violence against Filiina women and girls.

Violence against women takes shape in a multitude of forms including domestic violence, stalking, rape, sexual assault, the trafficking of women and children, date rape, verbal abuse, harassment and hate crimes.
 
Join the chorus of voices around the WORLD, as we say "NO" to violence against Women of Color.  Bring your grandmother, your mother, your wife, your aunt, your sister, your daughter, your niece, your friend.  Empower them.  Free them.  Bring the men in your lives, too.  Let us all help stop the madness.

The Filipina Women's Network advocates for an education campaign to raise awareness about the violence being perpetrated against Women. Consider the following statistics:
  • 41 – 61% of Asian women report experiencing physical and/or sexual violence by an intimate partner during their lifetime. 

    Source: A. Raj and J. Silverman, Intimate partner violence against South-Asian women in Greater Boston Journal of the American Medical Women’s Association.
  • 56% of Filipinas and 64% of Indian and Pakistani women had experienced sexual violence by an intimate in a study interviewing 143 women. 

    Source: Yoshihama M, Bybee D, Dabby C, Blazevski J. Lifecourse Experiences of Intimate Partner Violence and Help-Seeking among Filipino, Indian and Pakistani Women: Implications for Justice System Responses. Washington, DC: National Institute of Justice; 2011.
  • 5,200 – 7,800 Asians and Pacific Islanders comprise the largest group of people trafficked into the U.S., out of an estimated total of 14,500-17,500 individuals trafficked in 2004.

    Source: U.S. Department of Justice. Assessment of U.S. Government Activities to Combat Trafficking in Persons
  • 68% of Filipinas and 50% of Indian and Pakistani women reported being stalked by an intimate partner.

Source: Yoshihama M, Bybee D, Dabby C, Blazevski J. Lifecourse Experiences of Intimate Partner Violence and Help-Seeking among Filipino, Indian and Pakistani Women: Implications for Justice System Responses. Washington, DC: National Institute of Justice; 2011.
  • Research shows that children who witness domestic violence show more anxiety, low self esteem, depression, anger and temperament problems than their peers. They are at greater risk for abuse and neglect as children and to become abusers themselves as adults.

ABOUT BROUGHTON CASTLE
http://www.broughtoncastle.com

Broughton Castle is a moated and fortified manor house near Banbury in North Oxfordshire. Set in parkland and built of the rich local Hornton ironstone, it was selected by Simon Jenkins as one of only twenty to be awarded five stars in his book England’s Thousand Best Houses.

The core of the house was built in 1306 and the gatehouse in the early fifteenth century, but most of what you see today dates from the 1550’s. It was a centre of opposition to Charles I and was besieged and damaged after the Battle of Edgehill in 1642.

Broughton Castle is home to the 21st Lord and Lady Saye & Sele, whose family name is Fiennes. The ownership of the Castle has remained in the same family since 1447.
