As part of the Brighton and Hove 16 Days of Action to End Violence Against Women.
In Brighton and Hove last year it is estimated that:
• nearly 11,000 women will have experienced domestic violence
• nearly 3,000 women will have experienced sexual assault, and
• nearly 7,000 women will have been a victim of stalking.

The Brighton and Hove ’16 Days’ campaign aims to raise awareness of the problem of violence against women, and highlight the connections between women, violence, and human rights. It marks the international 16 days of activism to eliminate violence against women that falls between 25 November (the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women) and 10 December (International Human Rights Day).
With a cracking line-up of comedians, this comedy night will directly benefit two local domestic and sexual abuse charities, Rise and Survivors Network. All with laughter! It’s fun with the feelgood factor.
