How do we keep women safe?
The conversation continues. And the loudest voices call for self defence classes, rape alarms, trackers and a dress code.
The conversation needs to change. The voices of women need to be at the centre, but the responsibility and accountability lies elsewhere.
She Was Walking Home is a new piece of testimonial theatre based on the real-life experiences of 33 women living, working and studying in York. Originally created as an audio walk around the city centre, Next Door But One brings the live stage version of these stories of fear, harassment, suspicion, disappointment, anger and hope to venues across York to make sure the right voices are still being heard.
Join the conversation. Be a part of the change.
The show will last 1 hour and will be followed by a Q&A.
