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.

Her campaign ultimately led to the passing into law of the Voyeurism (Offences) Act in April 2019 which would make upskirting a criminal offence in England and Wales. Three other countries have since followed suit.

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

In General

What would you think if we asked you – what are Rugby Football players like?

You might perhaps imagine 15 oversized, hairy and muddy men in the field of play? Do you hear their low grunts or maybe wince at the thought of bone crunching tackles? Does it conjure thoughts of wasted exertion in fruitless pursuit of an oval ball?
