ActionAid at Latitude Festival

ActionAid won't be at Latitude Festival in 2021, but we wish our friends at Festival Republic all the best for this year's festival and can’t wait to return in July 2022!

In the meantime, we are planning other #MyBodyIsMine activities over the summer months, so do stay tuned.

We’ve put together a gallery of our favourite moments from Latitude Festival 2019 – if you feel like a quick bask in the nostalgia, take a look at our Facebook gallery.

Christie from Nigeria joined the #MyBodyIsMine movement to speak out against sexual harassment.

My Body Is Mine

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. Together, we can stand up to demand that women and girls everywhere have the right to say loudly and clearly: My Body Is Mine.

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