On 14th Dec I'm performing MODERN GIRL 1895 in aid of MY BODY BACK PROJECT. The show is based on a Victorian 'agony' column I discovered. Reading between the lines (and statistically), many of the women asking for advice would have suffered sexual violence. Most would never have sought help. The Victorian women I bring to life in the show would be proud of how far we've come, but also saddened that despite progress there's still a need for the service MY BODY BACK provides.
I'm going to be researching and adding a Victorian cabaret act to the show - probably not as extreme as sword swallowing; maybe a bit of mesmerism...
Please sponsor me! I want to boost the profits from the benefit gig and gift MY BODY BACK a tidy sum for Xmas.
TEXT MODG95 and then the amount you want to donate to 70070 i.e. MODG95£10 for easy giving.

The trauma of sexual violence can mean for many women that accessing essential healthcare services feels impossible. We started the My Body Back Clinics in direct response to requests from women we have worked with, giving them a space in which they feel in control and their needs are met. Our maternity and sexual health clinics are run in London and Glasgow, and are designed specifically for women and trans men who have experienced sexual violence. We rely entirely on public donations to keep our services running- thank you for your support.
