Women friendly Leeds blog

On Monday 18th October, the Women Friendly Leeds team, joined by partners, supporters and guests, came together to celebrate the end of our second year in action. We celebrated the work we have done together through our campaigns and beyond to make Leeds the first Women Friendly city in the UK!

This celebration included an interactive quiz on the results of our women’s safety survey, updates from the co-ordinators of our women and girls hubs, an incredible live performance from singer Kara Jowett, pledges from our ambassadors, and an animated video with updates on all our work this year (see below).

We want to thank all our supporters who came along to join us in celebrating our work and pledging to continue working with us towards our goal of making Leeds a safer, happier city for women and girls to live in.
