Harrogate Feminists


Another meeting

We met today and got lots of things decided.

 Our International Women’s Day event is taking shape – if only in our heads at present! – and we’re now starting to invite exhibitors.

Oh and we have all looked at our report on the “feeling safe in public spaces” (or “street harassment”) survey so we’ve now put the whole report on this website (divided into chunks for convenience, so you can go straight to the bits you’re more interested in)

See new links on the site map on the left-hand side of this page!

Notes from our last meeting

We met on Monday, 10th January and welcomed two new members to our group.

We ate biscuits, talked feminism, and got through lots of “business” too – including co-opting a chair, secretary and treasurer.

We talked about the results of our street harassment survey, which we’re going to post up on the website in full when all our members have had a chance to read the draft report properly. We also agreed to send the report to Harrogate District Community Safety Partnership when it’s finalised, and potentially also talk to Stray FM and the Harrogate Advertiser.

We talked about our draft constitution. We thought it was important to say somewhere that it’s fine for group members not to agree with each other, as long as they aren’t disruptive or derailing.

We talked about plans for our International Women’s Day event, on the afternoon of March 12th 2011, for which we have provisionally booked the Lower Hall of the Wesley Chapel in central Harrogate. The event will be called “A Celebration of Women” and we would like to invite women to share things they have made (arts, crafts… etc) as part of a celebration of women’s creativity. Amateurs and professionals will be equally welcome and nobody’s work will be judged against anyone else’s.

Our next meeting will be on Thursday 27th January, time and venue here.
