London Clubs Stand Against Sexual Harassment

GoodNightOut070314.jpg

I think this is one of the most important things that’s happening in any city these days, and I am so glad it is. The biggest clubs in London, including Fabric & Ministry of Sound hare united in fighting sexual harassment & assault within their walls. The global Hollaback network is asking dance music venues to take a “zero tolerance attitude to harassment & send a message to patrons that bad behaviour won’t go unchallenged” (via FACT Mag)

I think this is a tremendous opportunity to capitalize on the critical mass of dance music bloggery & the impact some DJs can have when it comes to changing the culture. I would love to see NYC clubs do this as well. If even a tiny percentage of top name DJs refused to perform at events if there wasn’t a zero-tolerance policy against aggressive behavior & unwanted attention, this could snowball very quickly. Tell a friend.

Just in case you needed some good news for the holidays, the Ministry of Sound is happy to oblige. On December 19th, the Mayor of London intervened and apparently a deal has been worked out to allow the Ministry of Sound to remain open even while the surroundings are under development. The world banded together to #saveourclub and it seems to have worked. Celebrate, you did something internets! (via Ministry of Sound)
