Help Raise £5K to Say 'Times Up For Strip Clubs'

Help Raise £5K to Say

Help us raise £5K to initiate a landmark legal case against Councils placing no limit on Strip Club numbers.

Donate Here

Just £5,000 means we will get a High Court Ruling on whether we have legal grounds to challenge Sheffield City Council for breaching Equality Law when it decided there should be no limits on strip clubs. This would send a very powerful message across the UK to all Councils and the entire Strip Industry.

Please chip in whatever you can and spread the word.

We are running this campaign with Irene, a Grandma, life long feminist and proud Sheffielder who refuses to be cowed by her councils decision to 'OK' the sexual objectification of our girls.

Irene has already taken one successful court case against Sheffield City Council when it granted a strip club license without properly considering the impact on women's safety and equality. She is now having to do it all over again but this time over her Council's entire lap dancing policy!

Please support Not Buying It and Irene. Because it will never be Times Up for sexual harassment in a society that says men can buy women as sexual entertainment.

P0rn Should be Banned

"P0rn Should be Banned"

Join, and support us (!), at the UCL debate "This House Would Ban Pornography". 90% plus of porn shows women being abused. Much of the rest is worse, much worse. Just researching material for this debate has been harrowing. So please support us, Vote 'No' to porn. After all, how can it ever be 'Times Up' for sexual assault when the majority of men are now watching sexual assault?

Mon 7 pm Jan 29 UCL full details here

We are thrilled to be teaming up with Dr Heather Brunskill-Evans, an authority on pornography. Check out her book here

Volunteers Needed!

Concerned by the porn and sex trade and their normalising? Then help us! Come to a protest, help with research, help with social media, help design fliers and posters, come film our protests and debates (you just need a steady hand and an iPhone!).

Fight the huge negativity of our culture with fun, positive, like-minded folk and get an all-round 'warm fuzzy feeling'. Because together we really can make change happen.

Looking back..

Times Up .. for Sexual Assault?

It was great to be part of the Times Up rally on Sun 21st Jan with 1,000s of others and dozens of amazing speakers.

See the amazing placards, read some of the extensive press coverage

And come to more rallies in March! Watch This Space

Times Up .. for Criminalising Victims?

It was great to join the amazing women, their lawyers, Nia Project, Centre for Women's Justice and dozens of other supporters at the Royal Courts of Justice calling for an end to having to disclose 'being a common prostitute' as a criminal record for women (and men) who have escaped the horrors of prostitution.

We should know shortly what the Court decides.

Interestingly not a single pro-sex industry, pro 'sex worker' advocate group appeared to be there.

Centre for Women's Justice is now asking for donations to challenge the release of John Worboys. Support them here

.. But Always Time for Laughter

And a huge thank you to Maureen Younger, of MY Comedy, for a wonderful (much needed) night of laughs earlier in the month. Check out Maureen's blog on 'Times Up' here and check out her monthly all-female comedy shows in London and Birmingham here


BMA says NO to Pimps

We are thrilled that the BMA voted last week not to legitimise pimps and punters, rejecting a motion by Junior Doctors to 'fully decriminalise' the sex industry (which means decriminalising pimps, brothel keepers and punters as well as prostitutes).

Government to Age Restrict Internet Porn

Soon porn will no longer be 'for kids of all ages'.

Despite fierce lobbying from supporters of porn and 'extreme' liberalism the Government will finally age-restrict internet porn. Why? Perhaps because:

90% Porn shows Violence vs Women

10% 12/13 Year Olds Addicted to Porn
