Charity Registration No. 1155140

Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page.

We have been shocked by the revelations of sexual violence against women in recent weeks in Westminster and Hollywood. We wanted to demonstrate our support for victims who come forward to report sexual assault by raising funds for Rape Crisis in England and Wales. 

We'll be doing this by watching as many feminist films as possible over the next month or so - we'll each make a donation for each movie we watch (suggested donation £5 per film).

If you want to support our film 'Crestival' efforts, please donate via our page - or better still - donate and watch a film yourself and tell us what you thought using 140 characters or less and #favefeministfilm
