No lapdancing club for Brixton or Oval

237 Signatures Goal: 200

Tomorrow night (19 Dec 2012) Lambeth Council's licensing committee will vote on giving a licence to a lapdancing club at 62a Brixton Road, SW9 6BS (see item 5a here: http://www.lambeth.gov.uk/moderngov/ieListDocuments.aspx?CId=116&MId=8178)

 

Research has shown that such establishments normalise men's sexual objectification of women and can lead to an increase in violence against women.  This piece by Beatrix Campbell "Sexism and the City" for The Guardian goes into futher detail: http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2008/dec/04/women-queens-speech-2008

 

At a time when Lambeth Council are currently running the commendable Real Men know the Difference campaign http://www.lambeth.gov.uk/knowthedifference which promotes a zero tolerance approach to gender based violence, we do not see how giving a club such as this a licence is acceptable. We urge them to reject this application.

 

Please sign to show your support for us in opposing this licence application, and against any other such establishments being given a licence in Lambeth. Join us in saying no to the objectification of women!

    I understand the power behind getting money from weak minded men, but c'mon some of them are incredibly weak and we can't prey on them too hard. That's stealing.
