How to Start a Movement on a shoe-string

  • 189 Shaftsbury Avenue Endeavour House WC2 H8JR London (map)

From 100,000 people marching in London for women’s rights, to campaigns for period justice, or for 50:50 equality in Parliament, women’s movements are growing like never before. 

Attend this event to hear the behind-scenes stories of two campaigns that are growing into movements:

  • Gabby Edlin is founder of Bloody Good Period. Gabby decided something needed to be done about the fact that very few food banks and asylum seeker drop-in centres were providing feminine hygiene products - despite a desperate need. What started as a whip-round on Facebook is now a growing enterprise with a vision to end period poverty.
     
  • Robyn Boosey is co-founder of IC Change, a campaign to make sure the UK Government makes law the Istanbul Convention a legal framework to prevent and combat violence against women and domestic violence. Last year IC Change led a coalition of organisations who successfully campaigned to get a new bill through Parliament to ensure Government action on the Istanbul Convention.

Attend this event to learn how to turn an idea into action and how to build a movement on a shoe string.

All proceeds from the event will be donated to Bloody Good Period and IC Change.
