Women’s Search For Meaning

Come and join us for an empowering evening of spoken word, poetry and live music.

Women’s search for meaning is a celebration of women’s bravery and courage, as well as an exploration of what gives women strength and inspiration to overcome adversity.

At this event we will particularly provide a space for the voices of women who aren’t heard enough, especially Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) women and women in prison.

Trafford Rape Crisis has collaborated with HM Prison Styal to share the work of women in prison. The top three winners of the “Women’s Search For Meaning” writing competition within HM Prison Styal will have their work shared at the event.

Manchester Half Marathon: Sunday 16 October 2016

Would you like to #runforsurvivorsofsexualviolence?  We have a few places for the Manchester Half Marathon.  If you would be happy to run it for us, or know somebody who would, please email us: traffordrapecrisis@googlemail.com. We would pay for your running place (normally £29/£39) but ask you to reach a target sponsorship of £200.
The money raised will help survivors of sexual violence to get the support they need.

Please help us by spreading the word, running it and fundraising for us or by making a donation. Every little helps and our runners will appreciate it – 23k is a long distance!
