The Future is Female
This event was held on 24th July 2021. It was to raise awareness of the rape culture. Rape Culture is the environment in which rape is prevalent and in which sexual violence against girls and women is normalized and excused.
This was a great event down in the donkey field at Prince’s Park. The speeches were really powerful. To hear 15 year olds so strongly raising the issue of violence against girls and women brings much hope.
Well done and thank you to everyone who helped organise.
Phenomenal Woman – Maya Angelou
Pretty Women wonder where my secret lies
I am not cute to fit a fashion model’s size
But when I start to tell them
They think I’m telling lies
It’s the reach of my arms
The span of my hips
The stride of my step
The curl of my lips
I am a woman
