"Don't Teach Me What To Wear – Teach Your Sons Not To Rape"

An open meeting in solidarity with India’s anti-rape protests and to confront gender violence in Britain

  • Wednesday 23 January, 6pm
  • New Theatre, East Building, LSE

Open to all - no booking required.


The brutal gang-rape of a 23-year-old woman student on a bus in Delhi on 16 December has led to protests on an unprecedented scale.

  • What are the implications of the protest movement in India and how can we support it?
  • What are the changes being demanded at a legal, political and social level?
  • How do we resist the colonial and racist responses to these events in Britain?
  • What do the Delhi protests mean for struggles against gender violence in Britain and globally?

This meeting will discuss these and other related issues, including solidarity actions on India’s Republic Day, 26th January. Kavita Krishnan of the All-India Progressive Women’s Association, one of the activists centrally involved in the protests, will be speaking to the meeting from India.
