Q&A with Gina Martin, campaigner who made upskirting illegal

In General

Join us for a Q&A with Activist, speaker and writer Gina Martin, who is best known for founding and running the national campaign to make upskirting illegal.

Gina is also an ambassador for UN Women UK and advocates for regular people creating change in their communities.

Tickets to the event on the 07 February at 18:00 are FREE sign up and get Read the rest
