Entry £3/£4 (but nobody refused entry for a lack of funds.)
Bristol Feminist Network, Bristol Fawcett have worked together over the last few years to raise awareness of the representation of women in the media. We were endlessly struck by the sheer absence of women from our culture - from the lack of women performing in comedy clubs, to the lack of women headlining gigs, and the dearth of films being shown by women directors and writers. The lack of women's voices on the radio, the invisibility of women on our TV screens and in our newspapers (except when wearing not much or to comment on women wearing not much...)
Tonight is designed to change all that. We are here to celebrate the talent and creativity of women, from film makers, musicians, comedians and artists.
This is a night to end the absence of women in our cultural landscape.

Energy giant EDF Energy has been blasted for breaching conservation guidelines and forcing a colony of badgers off land earmarked for controversial new nuclear power stations at Hinkley Point in north Somerset. Environmentalists warn that future corner-cutting could put lives at risk if construction of the two new reactors gets the green light.

an angry crowd of 50 to 100 people braved the cold tonight to picket a haringey council meeting at wood green civic centre in protest at proposed cuts on public services in the area.
the protest called on councillors to reject privatisation, reject and refuse to implement the cuts, or to resign on principle.
haringey council has already had £17 million central funding frozen or axed, and has announced it is facing cuts of £100 million over three years, with £50 million next year alone.
they have also announced their intention to privatise tottenham and wood green cemeteries and enfield crematorium.
the cuts will have devastating effects on public services and jobs, hitting the vulnerable, the young, and the voluntary sector hardest.
tonight's protest was small but noisy, and was organised and attended by several haringey activist groups.
councils throughout the country are facing similar protests outside town halls on a regular basis, and last week, a lewisham council meeting was closed down by an invasion of angry voters. (http://www.indymedia.org.uk/en/2010/11/468161.html)
