STATEMENT FROM THE RADFEM COLLECTIVE: RECLAIM THE NIGHT 2014

by Elsa Field


STATEMENT REGARDING EVENTS AT RECLAIM THE NIGHT LONDON, 2014


Saturday 22nd November 2014 will be remembered as a day of infamy in the Herstory of women's struggle for freedom and justice. For a long time time Radical Feminists have understood the debilitating, insidious undermining effects of liberals who are in our midst. The events of Saturday night in Reclaim The Night in London have illuminated the stark realities of what happens when we compromise our basic principles.


It is an obvious contradiction in terms, to march in the name of women's autonomy, security and freedom, where men and pro porn/prostitution/trafficking proponents are invited and embraced.


Whenever Radical Feminists point out that the emperor has a frock on, we are castigated by liberals who are appeasing their own misguided notions of humanitarian charity, instead of fighting for women's liberation.


We unreservedly support women naming and exposing male violence in all of its forms in the struggle for women's liberation.
