We brought #MyBodyIsMine to Latitude 

Whether you’re wearing a bikini at a festival, a uniform in a classroom or a trouser suit at work, you have the right to be free from harassment or abuse.

One in three women worldwide will experience physical violence or sexual abuse in their lifetime, most likely at the hands of someone they know. Beneath so much of this violence is a common idea: that women and girls’ bodies are the property of men, for them to exploit and control.

This is wrong, and it needs to stop. At Latitude Festival, ActionAid was encouraging women and girls to come together to say: My Body Is Mine. Everyone was encouraged to take part in all the activities, to show their support for #MyBodyIsMine and women’s rights.

Together, we can reclaim our bodies and shine a spotlight on violence against women and girls.
