The Walking Woman: a spoken word short film

Aggie’s spoken word expresses how she feels unsafe when walking alone at night.

After walking home one evening and experiencing a man making me feel unsafe once again, infuriated with anger I took to my notepad to write down what I was feeling.

Joining Rife as a content creator this year I wanted to use this opportunity to give voice to this experience, something I’ve encountered throughout my life in response to men’s inappropriate behaviour towards myself and other women and girls.

A short film made by Aggie Andrews, with support from Qezz Gill and Lucy Turner. Music by Onderwish from Freesound.

Rife is Watershed‘s online magazine created for young people, by young people.

We offer paid internships and publish work by young writers, photographers, illustrators, and filmmakers from all sorts of backgrounds, helping them get into creative careers. Rife has reached over 8,000 young people through our workshops, over 220 young people have made stuff for Rife on topics ranging from mental health to identity to baked beans, and last year, over 200,000 people visited our website.

In these complex and uncertain times hearing from and supporting young people who are advocating for social change and contributing fresh perspectives has never been so important. 

Through supporting Rife you can ensure that this important work continues and that more young people have their voices heard.
