Campaigns

Shoreditch Sisters WI are well known for campaigning on important issues such as Female Genital Mutilation, Gender Equality and against female detention with our focus on supporting the women held at Yarls Wood Female Detention Centre.

We were part of the Women of the World Festival at The South Bank Centre in March, where we displayed and worked on the Solidarity quilt that we made with other WIs and Women For Refugee Women; the quilt is now in the Chapel at the Detention Centre for the Ladies there.

The Vulva Quilt and Vulva bunting that we made was used in the BAFTA nominated documentary The Cruel Cut.

In the past we have given our support to No More Page 3 and the Ethical Porn Partnership.

We are working on some exiting new campaign this year where we are joining efforts to raise the issue of Period Poverty! Please email shoreditchsisterswi@gmail.com quoting ‘Campaigns’ in the subject line for more info.
