I really need your support , please post your experiences of sexism or even what your feelings are on this subject , I am working on a history project called Wolan ” women in Nottingham now and in the past ” it’s an amazing project I recently went on a women’s march in Nottingham called Reclaim The Night it was amazing turn out 250 plus women walked the streets if Nottingham protesting again sexism , rape, domestic violence and a use also equal work equal pay , women get on average 20 percent less pay than men so from November 10 th to January 2014 women work for free ! Yes for free ! Is that fair ? We do the same amount of work yet for 2 months we don’t get paid , that to me is sexism !
I will post the photos I took of the amazing women who attended the 1 at Reclaim the night in 30 years , there was even a women who brought her banner she made 30 years ago for the last one she attended , I hope there will be many more in years to come, I was proud to be there , also I am making a video about the Nottingham women’s centre and the women if Nottingham and the things we go through as women , I want to capture how strong we are and how much we have changed on the last 60 years , we are allowed to have a voice and I hope in another 30 years we are treated as equals and things really do change .
