Dr Sabina Akram, who was born and raised in England, highlights the struggles Asian women often face within their communities in regards to expectations of getting married and starting a family. She offers a new way of thinking where women, particularly from ethnic backgrounds, are not judged for not being married and can focus on their careers.
Dr Akram completed her BA, MA and PhD (English Literature) at ARU, and now teaches on the foundation degree at Cambridge Ruskin International College. She has taught at undergraduate level at ARU previously on the English Literature degree, and passionately supports women’s rights, particularly within the Asian community. She is also training to be an ambassador for the ‘Ask Me Project’ for Women’s Aid.
Event presented to celebrate International Women's Day.
