Who we're fundraising for
Refuge is a UK-based charity. As well as providing a range of support services for women & children, they campaign for changes to the way the Government responds to domestic and gender based violence victims and perpetrators, so that women and children are better protected. It also prevents future abuse by raising awareness of violence against women and girls.

The theme of this year’s IWD is ‘Choose to Challenge’. So we decided to roll with that to create a safe space celebrating rest as resistance. Patriarchal capitalist systems place value on productivity and profit above people, stripping us of our cyclical nature as human beings and need for sustainable structures.
We see rest as a radical act of resistance, a defiant claim to our right to take an intentional space of recovery from the exhausting impact of living under patriarchal capitalism.
Perhaps the most alarming and terrifying factor of the patriarchy is the way male violence against women is allowed to prevail in most societies across the globe which is why we are fundraising for Refuge to support women and children to be safe from violence.
