ActionAid at Latitude Festival 2018

In July 2018 we returned to Latitude Festival for the fourth year running, where we encouraged everyone to stand together, speak out and say #MyBodyIsMine

Thank you to everyone who joined us for a weekend packed with fun and empowering activities, from getting your own #MyBodyIsMine temporary tattoo to secret comedy gigs.

Take a look at just some of our favourite moments in our Facebook gallery.

Bringing #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 by 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 is encouraging women and girls to stand together and say #MyBodyIsMine. Men and boys can take part in all the activities too, to show their support for #MyBodyIsMine and women’s rights.
