I'm helping the Swansea Women's Centre and the Swansea Feminist Network in what is currently a written protest to stop the council from allowing a fully nude table dancing club to open in the city centre.
Rates of rape and sexual harassment around areas where there are clubs like these are significantly increased. Their plan to open this club right near to Swansea's biggest underage drinking street is completely ridiculous. Women shouldn't have to avoid an area in fear of verbal or physical harassment. It also provides a predominantly male only zone in which women are projected as sex objects. Job prospects in South Wales are low - a woman shouldn't feel like the best way of making money is to strip. It's demeaning and societally digressive.

and here are some email address you can send it to:
Please pass the message on to anybody you know who will oppose this. Even if you agree with what happens inside the club, think about the location and the danger it puts mothers, daughter, sisters, girlfriends etc in.
