HAB FemSoc Annual Supper Club - Report and Pictures

The annual HAB Feminist Society Supper club took place on Wednesday 24th April, with 100% of the ticket price going to charity thanks to the generous donation of Bleecker Burger who hosted the event and supplied the food and drink.

This year we raised money for Imkaan, a UK-based, black feminist organisation dedicated to addressing violence against women and girls.

FEMSOC 2019 83

"It was absolutely brilliant to see the young women of HAB FemSoc deliver yet another outstanding evening of performance and thought-provoking conversation alongside our inspirational speakers," said HAB FemSoc founder, photographer Leonora Saunders. "The girls highlighted the absolute need for focused activism and awareness in continuing to challenge the status quo and push for equality."

FEMSOC 2019 34

The evening included an empowering line-up of performers and speakers, who shared their stories of feminist activism including:

  • Miss Yankey, Performance Poet and founder of Poetry Prescribed, who performed her captivating spoken word
  • Seyi Newell, founder of TRiBE, which creates and provides innovative personal development and leadership programmes that encourage and empower Black women
  • and Anna Bull, senior lecturer in sociology at the University of Portsmouth and a founding member of The 1752 Group, an activist group tackling sexual harassment in higher education.

The students of HAB FemSoc also performed their own popular spoken word.

What students said...

"It was awe-inspiring. Everybody involved had created a space where honest and brazen conversations could be had. It has made me so excited and passionate about continuing the femsoc legacy." Jona, Year 12

"Truly inspirational, a chance to meet multiple active feminists who really make a difference." Tawhide, Year 13

"Very inspiring to hear the voices of really passionate women." Elaine, Year 13

"Last night all of HAB FemSoc's dreams came true, we finally had a conversation about a topic so close to us which is race and ethnic minorities. Despite it being an uncomfortable conversation because it was centered around domestic abuse and violence, we were all still so confident about talking about and sharing stories or words of advice. As head of FemSoc I am extremely proud of everyone's hard work and I can’t believe I have to say goodbye but that doesn’t mean I’m quitting it means I’m sharing my story. Last night was the best: “WE ARE HAB FEMSOC AND WE ARE ACTIVE”. Ayse, Year 13

Comments from our speakers...

"A lot of good things have come from angry black women, for example the #MeToo movement." Seyi Newell

"How can you help? Everybody needs to come together in solidarity and stand up for each other to make change." Marai Larasi, Head of Imkaan

"If your friends even make a degrading comment about women, challenge them, tell them that they are doing something wrong even if it is uncomfortable because if you don’t, the problem will continue." Miss Yankee, Spoken Word Poet

Zan, Bleecker manager, said how she was inspired by last year's supper club and supports HAB FemSoc to raise money for a very worthy charity.
