Dive into a compelling screening and discussion of ‘The Push – Murder on the Cliff’ with Glasgow Women’s Library and the Reading Group for Muslim Women. Experience this impactful documentary, recently featured on Channel 4, as it uncovers the haunting story of Fawziyah Javed’s tragic fate. She was a vibrant British-Pakistani woman, tragically pushed from Edinburgh’s Arthur’s Seat by her husband in 2021, after enduring relentless coercive control and domestic violence.

🎬 Through emotional testimonies, authentic footage, and expert insights, ‘The Push’ unravels the complex dynamics of abusive relationships. During the screening, we will pause and reflect on crucial moments, fueling conversations about relationship warning signs, emotional abuse, coercive control, honour-based violence, and the challenges of leaving abusive relationships.

Fawziyah’s courageous mother stands as an activist, shedding light on this pressing issue with unwavering strength and resilience. Let’s use this documentary as a driving force for change, sparking dialogue and actions towards a violence-free future.
