Poster from RTN Liverpool’s 2015 event this year

The event took place in Liverpool’s Quaker Meeting House, on the 3rd September 2015, as part of their ‘Fearless’ campaign which aims to end violence against women and girls all over the world.

ActionAid is an international non-profit organisation that works to end poverty and violence all over the world.

I was invited by ActionAid to talk about my own experiences as well as the local issues that women and girls face in the UK. I touch on violence, victim-blaming, so-called ‘first world feminism’ and anti-feminist backlash in the UK.

Please excuse the post-match-Steven-Gerrard ‘errrms’, I’m working on it!

TW: Some mention of sexual assault and rape.

You can find more information about the Fearless campaign and how to end violence against women on my last blog post (link to petition is at the end of the post!) here.
