On Saturday 23 October nearly 200 women – and men – marched through the streets of Hastings on a Reclaim Our Streets march organised by Women’s Voice.

Women’s Voice gets vocal about its achievements

Women’s Voice invites all women to their Annual General Meeting (AGM) on Friday 14 January at 6pm at the East Hastings Sea Angling Association (EHSAA), the Stade, just near the lifeboat house. The AGM will be followed by an evening of theatre, music, socialising and refreshments to celebrate the end of our This Is Not Love project.  The event is free, and all women are welcome. Women’s Voice chair, Ann Kramer, spoke to HOT about the upcoming event.

Thanks to Covid we’ve not had an AGM since International Women’s Day March 2020 — so one is well overdue. It will run from 6–6.45 pm and will be quite informal. We will reflect on what we have been involved with over the last couple of years, which despite Covid, has included some significant achievements. We will also elect a new committee, trustees, and officers.

We welcome women to join us as committee members, activists, officers and trustees to help Women’s Voice achieve its plans for 2022 and beyond. We’ve got some interesting ideas for the coming year and it would be great to have some new women activists to help put these into practice.

Talented young singer Izzy Withers will perform after the AGM.

After the AGM, we will be celebrating the end of our This Is Not Love project, which focused on domestic abuse, coercive control, and violence against women. There will be refreshments, socialising and some wonderful women performers. These include Izzy Withers, a singer/songwriter and activist, whose songs highlight real issues and dip into different genres, including RnB, soul, and Indie, and SHE Choir, a joyous, vibrant collaborative choir community for all women, non-binary and gender queer folk. Also performing are Collective Rage: Womxn’s Theatre, exploring the marginalized and unseen, and Carol Prior, singer/songwriter, performer, and choir leader, who is currently running All Choired Up. It will be an amazing evening.

The Angling Club is spacious, and we will ensure good ventilation. We do ask women to take lateral flow tests before coming please, and to wear masks.

All women are very welcome to attend. East Hastings Sea Angling Association is sited on the Stade between the Lifeboat House and Stade Hall. Entrance is by the external stairs – wheelchair users can ring the bell at the groundfloor entrance and take a lift up to the first floor.
