On Wednesday the 29th of November, University of Liverpool’s own Feminist Society will be taking over 24 Kitchen street to host Exhibitchin’ – a club night to raise money for the charity RASA (Rape And Sexual Abuse centre) in Merseyside.
‘RASA is here for anyone who has been sexually abused or raped, or who has been affected by sexual violence at any time in their lives. We have particular experience in working with adults who have been sexually abused as children. We offer emotional support, counselling, advocacy and other services to help survivors in ways that work for them. We will also work with non-offending family and friends of survivors.’
According to FemSoc, RASA is ‘detrimentally underfunded by the government’ and to combat this, will be hosting Exhibitchin’ in order to raise money for the charity and celebrate all things female with music themed around the best females in music history. This promises to have a vast and diverse range of music with something for everyone, from The Supremes to Nicky Minaj.
The society’s co-president, Lucy Pilling, has commented: ‘We are so excited about this event! It’s our first club night event, and I don’t think I have seen any all female artist nights in Liverpool before, so I’m super excited for the theme. Plus you’ll be able to get your face painted in glitter! RASA is a super important charity to us as femsoc, supporting people who have suffered and endured rape and sexual abuse is incredibly important to us. RASA is Merseyside’s ONLY rape and sexual abuse centre, and is detrimentally underfunded by the disgusting Tory government, and unfortunately rape centres are statistically frequently forgotten in public donations too. So obviously we want to raise as much money as possible so it’s great to know we have already sold out the first release of tickets!’
First release tickets have already sold out and are now on second release for £3.50. All proceeds will be going to RASA and tickets can be bought from either the Guild website or Skiddle:
