Welcome to Fanny Riot!

Based across Glasgow and Edinburgh, our collaborative is working to make spaces safer and standing up for change. 

We stand for intersectional feminism.

We choose to challenge patriarchal gender roles.

We fight for safer music spaces for all.

We support women supporting women.


What We Do

Standing for Change

Anarchists in the streets, fundamental rights in the sheets. As protest provacateurs, we stand loud for the voices which go unheard.

On-site Support and Advice

Through our FLAPS project, we provide an open ear, support, and advice at festivals for anyone who has experienced sexual harassment or assault - or just needs a safe space to reset.

Raising Awareness

Rape culture cannot continue to be ignored by those it has not harmed. We raise awareness not only of the threat it poses to our communities, but also of suitable support which should be on offer.

Forging Community

Through our events, we offer a lighthearted, open minded and supportive space where women, non binary people and allies can connect. Together, we are stronger.


“Someone clever once said
Women were not allowed pockets
In case they carried leaflets
To spread sedition
Which means unrest
To you and me
A grandiose word
For commonsense
So ladies, start sewing
Dangerous coats
Made of pockets and sedition"
