The seminar goal is to present a full spectrum of topics around Sexism in Nightlife – from project results and outputs, through presentations of good practice examples around prevention of sexism and sexualised violence in nightlife, roundtable discussions and networking with the Sexism Free Night Network Launch.
The research activities of Sexism Free Night were based in a Europe-wide websurvey aimed at collect information on the prevalence of sexism and sexual violence among over-18s in Europe, and to analyse its intersections with specific key factors such as patterns of drug use, participation in nightlife and party environments, nightlife mobility and beliefs about sexual violence.
Sexism Free Night is a project involving nightlife promoters, NGOs and a University that aims to promote safer and more egalitarian nightlife environments.
We stand for:
A future where nightlife embraces a gender perspective in the promotion of safety, diversity & valuable experiences for all.
The recognition of nightlife’s key role in shaping urban scenes and identities by offering space-times for creative development, experimentation and cultural activation of individuals & communities.
The counteraction of a male-dominated, binary, gender stereotyped and structurally unequal industry that limits opportunities, promotes violence and compromises freedom of expression and transcendence.
Nightlife’s gender mainstreaming through a multicomponent & participatory approach aimed at night-time cultures and stakeholders.
The cooperation with other initiatives that contribute to the eradication of sexism joining efforts in the intervention with violence survivors or perpetrators.
Sexism Free Night aims to reduce sexual violence and sexism in nightlife scenes by raising awareness among party goers and promoting safer and more egalitarian nightlife environments.
