From Mary Lidgate
Women’s Voices Café on Friday 31st January at The Oyster Catcher Café, Northumberland Place, Teignmouth.  Café opens at 7.30pm for 8pm start.  Drinks and light refreshments available.

 

Hello everyone and welcome to a new series of Women’s Voices cafes.  Our first café is on a serious and somewhat scary topic but our speaker brings a very personal perspective to it as well as her professional experience, a special brand of pragmatism and her vital energy.

 

Speaker: Fee Scott, Devon Rape Crisis Centre, Exeter

 

Fee Scott works for the Devon Rape Crisis Centre, work she was drawn to and is committed to for personal as well as professional reasons.  Fee welcomes an opportunity to come to Women’s Voices café and share her personal experience.  She would like to share her story of what drew her to the work as well as her somewhat pragmatic view of what she has learned.

 

There is a complicated narrative around rape; what constitutes rape? Why and how it happens? Who or what is to blame?  Is it endemic in our society?  If so, what is that about?  Fee would like to hear from you about your views around this issue and looks forward to answering any questions you may have.
