Vigil for Victims of Gender-Based Violence

Help us make it happen Donate to FoD

The Women’s Equality Party and local campaign group Our Bodies Our Streets have come together to organise a vigil for victims of gender-based violence, with speakers, poetry and a chance to come together to reflect, and remember the victims.

No registration required - just come along.

Our Bodies Our Streets is a Sheffield based campaign tackling the issues of catcalling and street ha

The Women’s Equality Party is a new collaborative force in British politics uniting people of all genders, ages, backgrounds, ethnicities, beliefs and experiences in the shared determination to see women enjoy the same rights and opportunities as men - so that all can flourish.
