On the 2 December, Women’s Lives Leeds held their Speak Up event at Leeds Beckett University, showcasing an exhibition of activist art and inviting people to take part in a Q&A with the police to help facilitate dialogue and understand how we could be doing more as a city, as well as getting to understand where the real anxieties lie.
As of 25 November, the group have relaunched their Women’s Night Safe Space which will be available for all to access in Dortmund Square on Saturday nights. Whether you need somewhere to go when you’ve lost your friends, your phone is dead, you want to sober up a bit, or you just generally need someone to speak to, all are encouraged to make use of the space.
Women’s Lives Leeds also ran a stall in the LUU foyer to share more about what they do to make Leeds a women friendly city. They’re a brilliant organisation, so do check them out if you’re interested in learning more.
