Women Deserve a Safe Space at Oregon Eclipse Festival
This petition had 305 supporters
We request the provision of a designated 'Women's Space' at the 2017 Oregon Eclipse Festival.
It is a well documented fact that women face high rates of harassment, unwanted touching, assault and rape during music festivals.
We don't need to look far to find numerous reports of these types of incidences;
In addition, A 2013 UK study found 85 percent of all serious sexual offences aren't reported to the police.
This is why we believe Oregon Eclipse should support Women's safety by providing a women's space.
In addition to providing women with a safe refuge from this all-too-common harassment, the space would serve as a hub for women to form community, connect and built relationships. This aligns perfectly with Oregon Eclipses stated highest purpose of "Creating novel, unifying experiences to bring community together".
Oregon Eclipse should show it's support for women's safety by taking this call to action seriously and providing a Women's Space at the 2017 Oregon Eclipse.
