Are you in Harrogate? Local group Harrogate Feminists introduce themselves

We are a new feminist group, setting up in June 2010.

We have been concerned about how the children of the internet generation are dealing with all the spoken and unspoken messages out there about how women should be. If children come to internalise the sexist assumptions which most of these messages are based on, this will only serve to perpetuate inequality down the generations. But the more of us who speak out to challenge sexism, the more of a chance there is that things will change for the better.

We are starting with a campaign to encourage Harrogate Borough Council to adopt the new licensing laws that allow better local regulation of lap-dancing venues.

In the longer term, we would like to stimulate discussion of all issues relating to equality between women and men.
