Helen Of Troy... Makes A Stand

We’ve been busy bees of late, what with our new monthly residency at the Underachievers Wednesday Sessions, as well as talking about the possibility of taking HOTDCD further afield later on this year – we’ll let you know more when we do!

In addition to this, we're pleased to announce that we'll be involved in Reclaim The Night North this Saturday - taking to the streets to reclaim them from gender-based violence, and hosting a special Helen Of Troy... event at Club Academy.

All info for the march and for the club event is listed below, courtesy of The Riveters- The UMSU Women's Rights Group.

On Saturday the 21st of February we will take to the streets to reclaim them from gender-based violence.

Start at the University of Manchester Students' Union at 7.30pm and march to reclaim our spaces.

Rally and performers will follow in the Academy, speakers include: English Collective of Prostitutes, Women Asylum Seekers Together, NUS LGBT Campaign and Feminist Fightback.

Performers include: Aileen Quinn, Vanessa Fay - Friendly Feminist Poet, Steph Pike - Feminist Performance Poet, The Spokes - Female Bicycle Dance Troupe, and Helen of Troy will put on a club night to celebrate RECLAIMING.

The event is open to all genders.

Together we can reclaim our spaces and say no to Violence Against Women.

See you there!
