Based in the United Kingdom, I have been a radical feminist since 2012, and am involved in a range of feminist campaigns. This includes being on the Organising Group for the national organisation RadFem UK, that amongst other objectives, supports the introduction of the Nordic Model. We are for example, organising a range of events, for exited women to talk about the realities of prostitution.

  1. Wow! I have no idea how your blog came to be part of my blogs that I follow” reader… I’m almost certain that I’ve never come across this blog before! Coincidentally yesterday, I wrote a post “Personal Experiece in encountering sexual exploitation” while I was visiting a shelter for abused girls in Angeles City, Phillipines last year. Would love to partner with you and I pray that we can make a difference. Please keep those posts coming! We need to be exposed and made aware of this horrifying issue to wake us all up from our sleep! God bless, Mel.
