From The Socialist newspaper, 3 October 2012

Rape is No Joke campaign discussed

Building the campaign to say:

'Why should feminists be socialists?' This and the new campaign Rape Is No Joke were the subjects of discussion at a meeting called by the Socialist Party and Socialist Students on 29 September.

Sarah Wrack introduced the meeting explaining how and why women have been and still are oppressed. She described how the Socialist Party campaigns to end sexism and the capitalist system that fosters it.

Helen Pattison spoke about why Socialist Students has launched Rape Is No Joke. We need to get comedians to commit not to make jokes about rape and oppose those who do.

A wide ranging discussion took place on a number of issues including abortion, unionisation of sex workers and much more.

Afterwards, people attending their first socialist meeting wanted to get involved with the Socialist Party and the Rape Is No Joke campaign.
