Women – Protest the sexist Miss World contest! Sunday 6 November 2011
Join the London Feminist Network, OBJECT, UK Feminista, Million Women Rise and others in demonstrating against the Miss World contest. Join this mass protest and let your feelings about this sexist and retrograde event be known!
40 years ago, feminists disrupted this sexist contest in spectacular fashion, with chants of ‘We’re not beautiful, we’re not ugly… we’re ANGRY!!’ Let the organisers and all those profiting from the event know that we are ALL angry that such an event is once again being held here in London, 40 years later. Bring placards, banners and raise your voice against this appalling offence against women’s equality. Let them know loud and clear that this event has NO PLACE in London in 2011!
Being a woman is not a competition!
Assemble: The Tournament pub (opposite West Brompton tube station – District line, London Overground line; please check for weekend engineering works.)
Time: 2.15pm briefing (protest begins at 2.45pm)
Protest is likely to last around 2 – 2.5hrs
All women welcome.
See you there – let’s make some noise!!!
