Not On Our Watch

Not On Our Watch

When our only dedicated women’s hostel is threatened with closure, six determined workers rise together to fight against a failing system and an uncaring establishment.  

For 12 weeks they live, work, and breathe resistance. 

Standing up to a management structure refusing to find solutions. 

Standing up for the women they protect. 

Standing up for essential services. 

Standing up to shout:
