Women's Day Celebrations in Liverpool
March through Liverpool
12th March 2011
I would just like to thank all of those involved in organising the events
and stalls at Bluecoat today and of course the march through Liverpool
I went on the march this afternoon and felt empowered, for the first
time ever, walking passed the lap dancing club, X in the City, by Lime
Street. As we walked in front of this venue, I felt we as women were able
to collectively voice our opposition to the sexual objectification of women
in these establishments. I was overwhelmed by the presence of so many
dedicated women, cutting across age, social class, race and disability
and much more. I also saw men on the march supporting the cause, and this
of course was great to see. The presence of children there was also fantastic,
who had been brought along by parents and carers.
Thanks again for a great day, Lisa.
