Booty Call update

with 2 comments

I’ve written a piece for Village Aunties here.

I’ve had some messages about where we take things from here. Personally, I’d like to run more campaigns around clubbing, perhaps in particular about sexual harassment and assault in nightclubs, which is incredibly common.

What do you guys think?

P.S. Look at the original flyer (below), it’s absolutely rank. Glad we put a stop to that.

  1. Saw this from London thought it seemed pretty worthwhile. Would be happy to help out with future stuff if possible.

    Did you try going out as a group and (in a friendly and non-confrontative manner obv) interviewing men and women going to the club (ie in the queue, or in nearby pubs) and asking them what they thought of the flyer, perhaps getting them to give an opinion on how sexist they thought it was out of ten etc with a camcorder in tow.

    Also it could be worth putting together a flyer aimed at staff at clubs and bars, since i’d say female bar staff are probably going to get the worst of the sexist banter in pubs, especially since they can’t leave.
