"I immediately thought my life is over" - Patsy Stevenson

This week, we've got a slightly different episode that saw us take the podcast into central London to join the Women’s Equality Party as they Marched On The Met. When we initially contacted Patsy Stevenson, we thought this would be a standard interview week, but then we realised that there was much more that needed to be shared. Patsy attended the Sarah Everard vigil on Clapham Common in March 2021; she quickly became synonymous with the arrests that took place that day, carried out by police who saw the vigil as a breach of covid regulations. Her face was suddenly everywhere, the face of the unrest that happened when women's attempts to mourn were crushed.The story is bigger than this though. After Patsy shared her thoughts on what really happened that day, we followed her to Trafalgar Square to join a protest against institutional misogyny and racism within the police. We heard from some incredible women there, and wanted to share their thoughts with you.The speakers you heard from today were:Patsy StevensonMandu ReidMarvina Eseoghene NewtonJenn SelbyChantelle LuntDawn ButlerBell Ribeiro AddyMiss YankeySouthall Black SistersAlso, we suggest checking out Sistah Space and their work on Valerie's Law.Follow us on Instagram @shouldideletethatEmail us at [email protected] & edited by Daisy GrantMusic by Alex Andrew See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
