They invited Lisa to speak at their annual conference in Southport on 10 June 2019, about the campaign. Watch the film here on You Tube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6_50u7Ay-3I
After the speech there was a standing ovation. The BFAWU represent workers in fast food and hospitality industries and is a leading campaign taking strike actions against precarious contracts and low pay. We know that benefit cuts and poverty wages make women and girls more vulnerable to sexual violence, including abuse of power by employers.

FNF replied saying that they are a “reputable charity” but did not address domestic violence or any of the other issues raised. A FNF man confronted the picket saying that ‘more children are killed by their mothers than by their fathers’.

Women Against Rape’s Refuge from Rape and Destitution Campaign. The campaign was launched at the Cowley Club in Brighton 25 September 2017. See video of the meeting “Living on the Edge: refusing Dickensian destitution and other social murder” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hn4XqkmUwik&t=4826s
In poor communities, as many as 50% of children are reported to social services. Poverty is used to allege ‘neglect,’ treat mothers as surrogates for fostering and adoption without consent, inflicting lifelong trauma on thousands of children. Single mothers are most at risk, especially if they report rape or domestic violence, are of colour, or have a disability. A growing movement is breaking the silence and picketing secretive family courts. It is reflected in Labour’s manifesto. Mothers, women’s organisations, professionals, MPs – and you – speak out.
