Campaign Action: Go to your MP’s Meet the People Session

(Campaign Actions are suggestions we make every fortnight for steps you can take – in addition to spreading the No To Rape message online – to help the effort for change. Previous Campaign Actions: [1], [2], [3], [4], [5], [6], [7] and [8].)

You object to marital immunity for rape. You believe women deserve protection from violence, no matter who commits it.

We know this. But for the law to change, we need your MP to know it too.

That’s why our Campaign Action from now to the petition deadline on 30 November is:

Go to your MP’s Meet the People Session. Tell your MP that you believe rape is always violence, and that married women need the full protection of the law.

Tell your MP that more than 3,000 people have signed the No To Rape online petition, and that the number is growing.

Tell them that you have heard and read the stories of women who have experienced marital rape – on Channel News Asia and in Her World – and that the current law is inadequate to protect them.

You can use the leaflet on our Promote page to help you make your points.

If you would like to coordinate your meeting with your MP with another No To Rape supporter, email us with your constituency and preferred dates (if any) in advance. We will put people in touch with one another.

In addition, please do email us afterward and let us know how your meeting went.

Thank you for taking action to create change.
