Introducing….The Pink Protest!

Introducing The Pink Protest, a new kind of activism platform.

Founded by Scarlett Curtis, Grace Campbell, and Alice Skinner; The Pink Protest is a community of activists committed to engaging in action and supporting each other.

The main focuses of @ThePinkProtest are producing content to support campaigns and utilising social media as well as IRL spaces to make change happen. Starting with #FREEPERIODS, a
collaboration with student and activist, Amika George, The Pink Protest will become THE destination for producing content and raising the profile of those that they partner with. The overarching aim of The Pink Protest is to build up a network of amazing activists and help support them as they conquer the world utilising social media, brands, events and traditional media
to lift up the incredible people around them who are fighting to make the world a better place.

Amazing idea, right?

To launch The Pink Protest have released a series of short powerful films titled ARE YOU AN ACTIVIST, with women aged 12-90 discussing what it means to be an activist today. Contributors include Tanya Burr, Jameela Jamil, Emma Freud (and me!). You can view the series here

December will also see The Pink Protest take on the #FREEPERIODS movement with a collaboration with student and activist, Amika George fighting period poverty. The collective have organised a march at Parliament on the 20th December calling on Theresa May to give free sanitary products to all girls in the UK already on free school meals.
