Girli partners with Girls Against

Girli has announced a partnership with Girls Against, a group fighting sexual harassment and sexual assault in music venues. The first stage of this will be a prominent presence for the organisation at Girli’s upcoming show at the Camden Assembly this Thursday.

“Girls Against speak up about something very close to my heart, and something that’s ignored too much”, says Girli. “I’ve been groped at gigs and made to feel uncomfortable. It’s something that happens to all sexes but particularly girls, which makes gigs the opposite of what they should be – a safe, friendly and fun environment for everyone to enjoy the music”.

Expanding on Girls Against’s presence at this week’s show, she continues: “They’re gonna be coming along to the gig to spread the word that if you or anyone you know is a victim of harassment or groping at a gig that you can speak up about it without being ignored and that there are people you can tell and get help. No one should feel scared or vulnerable at a gig”.
