Anti-Harassment Message Takes Center Stage — BAFTA Awards

Virtually all women at the ceremony wore black except for the Duchess of Cambridge, who donned green.
As soon as a clearing emerges in front of us, I hear the whistle sound and before I know it myself and 11 of my sisters are scaling the barriers to get on to the carpet. Again, they were protesting the cuts to domestic abuse services, and demonstrators wore tops with posters stuck on saying, "Two women killed every week" and 'Dead women can't vote'.
Sisters Uncut say that the Domestic Violence Bill is a risky distraction from the austerity cuts that have decimated the domestic violence sector since 2010. If the government's domestic violence and abuse bill centres on the criminal justice system, support services will be left to crumble, and survivors will remain trapped.
The Prime Minister wants to deal with domestic violence with more laws, increased police power and longer prison sentences. With the upcoming Domestic Violence and Abuse Act, May is hoping to raise public awareness around the issue and to improve the system in place.
Without our continued pressure over the past three years, there probably wouldn't even be a domestic violence and abuse bill on the table right now. This bill will only make such tragic cases more likely.
The 71st BAFTA Awards faced a disaster this evening as campaigners stormed the red carpet. Both male and female attendees sported badges name-checking the "Time's Up" campaign against sexual harassment.
"Our film is a hopeful one in lots of ways but it's also an angry one, and as we've seen this year, sometimes anger is the only way to get people to listen and to change, so we're thrilled that BAFTA has recognized this", he said.
In the U.S., say Sisters Uncut, similar policies to those proposed in the Domestic Violence and Abuse Bill have led to an increase in the number of survivors being arrested, especially black and minority ethnic and poorer survivors.
"As well as calling Time's Up on individual perpetrators, we have to call Time's Up on our government for failing to provide us with real options and support".
Wearing t-shirts reading "Time's Up, Theresa", they linked arms and lay down on the red carpet for several minutes before the cops arrived.
They were eventually led away by police, but no arrests were made. No arrests were made.
