We launch our groundbreaking new performance to challenge hate crime against women today at City of Glasgow College, and at Glasgow Kelvin College on the 17th March.
To coincide with International Women’s Day, the performances, titled No-one who harms me will go unpunished. I am a woman are choreographed protests and will be a brand new resource to raise awareness of women’s experiences of hate crime in Scotland.
Women were important and purposeful here, “Sisterhood is Powerful” rang in my thoughts. And that same spirit continues today, 25 years since GWL’s inception.
The criminal term ‘hate crime’ poses a barrier to women in coming forward to speak about their experiences of targeted victimisation or hostility, we want to remove this.
As we reach the midway point of this project year it seems like a natural time to reflect on how we’re engaging people in the discussion on sectarianism. Find out how you can get involved.
Do you love reading? Are you excited about books? Perfect! We are looking for women to review our Mixing The Colours: women speaking about sectarianism publication.
The first 10 people to post a comment will to be entered into our draw for a free ticket to our Mixing The Colours @JustFestival on Tuesday 11th August!

“Group together to inspire change.” A significant aspect of our work on Mixing The Colours is collective action. Working as a group our participants found power in numbers. We need YOU to continue to challenge sectarianism in a safe way together. Mixing The Colours has a packed programme and we warmly invite you to join us at our events across Scotland.
The Scottish Community Development Centre is offering organisations running, or intending to run, anti-sectarian initiatives the opportunity to be supported by Mixing The Colours as a mentor experienced in the anti-sectarianism field.
