The 2017 Feminist Calendar: events for protesting, collaborating and celebrating the sisterhood

It’s difficult to think of a time in recent years when feminism has been needed quite so much as is is now.

Last year, we saw an alleged sex offender voted into the Whitehouse, cuts to domestic violence services, reproductive rights come under threat and the stubborn gender pay gap refuse to budge. It’s clear we can no longer sit back and watch it all happen. 

With that in mind, we've compiled a handy calendar of UK-wide feminist events and dates, from rallies and workshops, to comedy nights and book launches, literary festivals and theatre productions, so you can celebrate, educate and get irate.

Now is not the time to be complacent, join your sisters and mark these dates in the diary – the future is female.
