March

March route

The march and the events are all coming together-yay! (see the post below for details of a film screening)

The march will kick off with a pre-march gathering at 6:30-7:30pm the Cornerstone Cafe. This will be a great start where we can meet, chat and make posters. We will then set off from Festival Square at 7.30pm. The march is being led by the Commotion Women Drummers with women taking the lead and men following. We will walk down Lothian Road, onto Princes Street, up The Mound, where men from the discussion group at the wash bar (6:30-7:30) will join in solidarity. We will then walk up North Bridge, Bristo PLace, and Teviot Place, ending in the Meadows.

Once at the Meadows, we will have a rally. Speakers at the rally will be Sandy Brindley (Rape Crisis Scotland), Iain Wallace (White Ribbon Campaign), Ellie Hutchinson (Edinburgh Feminist Network-that’s us!), and survivor stories will be read by women from Edinburgh Feminist Network.

Following the march, we will head up to the Wee Red Bar for drinks and dancing to celebrate the fantastic march, DJing women and feminist fun from 10-3, tickets on the door for £2.

Men’s Discussion Group

As part of the march, we will be hosting a men’s discussion group at the Wash bar on the mound.

This discussion group will be facilitated by Iain Wallace of the White Ribbon campaign, a global organisation that is working to end violence against women through asking men to take more responsibility in the stop violence against women movement.

We invite any interested men to come along, and if you want to find out what you can do to end violence against women email us at e_f_n@myway.com.
