Hey all!

Wow, week four already? Time sure is flying by. It just so happens that this week our amnesteam are focused on bringing you a very exciting week of events. The proceeds from the week will go to Edinburgh Rape Crisis Centre (ERCC) who provide free and confidential support and advice to survivors of sexual violence.

Our Ceilidh for Equality was a HUGE success and an excellent way to spend the evening. But don’t fret if you missed it. We have a whole week of exciting events in store for you.


Our panel debate on public policy and gender-based violence will feature speakers from the major political parties. Come along tonight at 6:30pm sharp if you’re interested! If you can’t make it along but have the time to spare, the whole debate will be streamed live here. Exciting, huh?

What’s that? You want more? Well, if you insist.

Tomorrow evening, we’re having a debate and discussion about gender history and why it matters. Dr. Tim Webster will be talking about ‘witches, women, and worth’. If that doesn’t peak your interest, well, we don’t know what will.

If that’s not enough for you, never fear! We’re not done yet. On Wednesday, in place of our usual meeting, we have a screening of an award-winning Iranian film called “A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night” which is really exciting. We’ve heard tell of a skateboarding vampire. Intrigued? Come along!

And last, but certainly not least, we have an excellent line up for our Cabaret evening and some wonderful (seriously, you have no idea how cool they are) raffle prizes. While tickets are indeed sold out, there will be a limited number available on the door. If you didn’t manage to beat the crowds, make sure you’re there super early and you’ll still be in with a chance.

The Facebook event pages for each of the week’s events can be found here. Please do come along – we’d love to see you there! We might even save you a seat if you ask nicely.
