Movement for Change activists from across south London, spearheaded by women members of the Lambeth Women’s Forum, are taking action to improve the safety practices of nightclubs in Brixton.
Trained and developed by Movement for Change, the activists have launched a Women’s Safety Charter. The Charter arose out of dozens of 1-2-1 conversations as part of a community-wide listening campaign earlier this year. In May 2012, we worked in alliance with school students, local youth groups and charities (such as the National Stalking Helpline and the local Women’s Institute) to stage a large community meeting in the Brixton area. At the event, Movement for Change activists presented testimony on their experiences of safety in the night-time economy and put forward concrete suggestions for change.
