    Hi everyone
    Just to let you know I will be attending on Wednesday only, from 3 pm onwards . If anyone wants to join me my mobile is [masked], so please contact me and we can meet up and visit the exhibits , discussions, videos etc , together, or else we can do things independently , and then meet up at around 6 pm for coffee/ drinks/ chats about the event? As Excel is so large , and if we are not moving about together - we will need to text each other to decide where to meet for coffee/ chats ?!!

    See everyone there ! :)

    Just thought I would note that I will be there each day from around 17:00 (unfortunately at work during the day), and would be very happy to sit in to panel discussions with those similarly interested.

  • Ziggy F

    Hi everyone coming to this - just to let you know that closer to the date - I will liaise with all attendees so that we either go to events together , or if people are coming in at different times - that we meet for coffee/ drinks/chats late afternoon, or early evening ....

    I may go another day if I m working this day. It seems that women get harassed and pressurised by men to accept this outrageous unwanted behaviour. I complained to the police when a man came into my room at a rented property, to be told to go home, that I was overreacting and that the man was just being a bit of an arsehole. Well subsequently I ended up in the street as the perpetrator chucked. me out 10 12 freezing. The council said they couldn t help me after humiliating me in public, I was help by a women s charity to escape to a refuge but I ended up homeless again as the council could not re house me. I luckily had some cash so came back to London to find work and to my university. I had to give up my life due to this. I feel extremely strongly about women s issues. The government don t seem to realise how serious a problem this is. It s happened to me 3 times where I was beaten and told to go back to the perpetrator. Then I took another attacker to court and lost the case.

      Women need to stand up ...we need a voice and to speak out.

    I think it's a very important issue for us women around the world and we must register our protest against the non- action like in India after the Delhi rape,it has not stopped.women are raped each day every hour!
