Women Rise

The Jacksons Lane project is giving women in Haringey increased confidence.

Women Rise is a community project that gives local women the chance to debate and learn about the issue of safety of women in Haringey through exciting Women Rise events involving actors, theatre and debate.

Local service providers for women have also been getting involved  promoting their projects and services. The free events with a women only audience are happening up until December 2016 in various locations in Haringey. So far this has included the Triangle Centre in Seven Sisters and Fusion Gym in Tottenham. These events although addressing a serious issue are welcoming, engaging, interactive and  explore positive solutions to barriers women are facing in society in an entertaining performance.

Events have been followed by a series of 6 women only self-defence workshops taking place throughout Haringey. The best news is this is all FREE!

The next Women Rise event is:

Venue: Somerford Grove Adventure Playground, Park Lane Close, Northumberland Park, N17 0HL
