My story

[p]Thank you for visiting our team's fundraising page for the 2019 London Legal sponsored walk[/p][p]Our team is: [b]Jenny Newton, Estelle du Boulay, Kate Holmes, Olive Craig, Gemma Adams, Lorna Cservenka, Lorraine Collier, Jackie Pearce, Taranjit Chana and [/b][b]Malinda Mukuma [/b][/p][p][b] [/b][i]Over half a million women in the UK experience domestic abuse every year.[/i][/p][p][i]Nearly half of all women and nearly two thirds of women aged 18 to 24 said they have experienced sexual harassment in the workplace (TUC and Everyday Sexism Survey 2016)[/i][/p][p][b]With your help we can change this[/b][/p][p]Our team is raising funds for [url=http://www.rightsofwomen.org.uk//t_blank]Rights of Women[/url], a charity providing vital and unique legal advice and information services for women in England and Wales. All money raised on this page will be donated 100% to Rights of Women, with no deduction.[/p][p]Rights of Women has been assisting women to access their legal rights to achieve equality, justice and safety since 1975. Our dedicated staff and volunteer team advise around 2000 women a year, providing free confidential specialist legal advice.[/p][p]Our advice services are currently targeted at women facing domestic abuse and sexual violence. This year we are expanding these much-needed services to also provide legal advice to women experiencing sexual harassment in the workplace.[/p][p]The #metoo and TIMESUP movements have highlighted how widespread sexual harassment against women is and the many barriers they face when reporting or challenging this. Our new advice service will empower women to understand their rights, make informed choices and take positive steps forward. We will also be campaigning on law and policy issues arising from this work. For too long sexual harassment has been normalised or not taken seriously we want to see a shift that means women can be confident of being safe, respected and treated equally at work.[/p][p]Help us to continue providing this vital resource and ensuring that all women have access to justice.[/p][p][b]Please donate as generously as you are able[/b][/p][p][b]Many thanks for your support[/b][/p][p][i]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor us and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. We really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/i][/p][p][br][/p]
