Gothenburg Culture Festival wants women’s only zones to counter sex offenders

An original translation by Tania Groth with much thanks

From this Swedish publication:

Gothenburg Culture Festival is considering introducing a special area in front of the scene where only women are allowed.

Safe zones in front of the scenes, where only women are allowed to be. It is one of the measures that the Gothenburg Culture Festival is considering to prevent sexual abuse during the festival.

It would be a dramatic measure for us as an open festival. But everyone should be able to experience the festival without feeling unsafe, Stafilidis said.

Abuse of female festival goers has received considerable attention recently, particularly after several rapes during Bråvalla festival and a large number of reports of sexual molestation in connection with Putte i Parken in Karlstad.

“No one should feel unsafe”

The Culture Festival in Gothenburg has so far been spared from similar problems, says business leader Tasso Stafilidis. But for this year’s edition, in mid-August, the festival has nevertheless, as a last resort, developed a program which includes safe zones in front of the stage.

We must be prepared to actively do something about it. It is for that reason that we are considering these zones.

“Securing the space”

In the first place, he hopes, however, that other measures, like tailor-made training for both the volunteers and security personnel, should suffice.
But if something still happens, then of course those other actions are not enough. Then maybe we have to offer voluntary, safe spaces in front of the largest scenes.

  1. “Safe spaces for women”,
    Don’t the festival organisers think that the muslim jackles won’t be waiting outside the woman only zone?
    After the said women may have consumed booze or stronger?!

    Yeah mate!
    I predicit women only zones will work as well as the “Don’t touch me” wristbands.

    • The left has demonized self defense for so long they are incapable of thinking in any terms besides big government setting up a non violent program to fight the aggressors who are obviously misunderstood and in need of love and counseling. You can tell the area where the sarcasm is dripping from.

  2. Sex segregation is part of Sharia – and groping and sex attacks are the way Muslims enforce it.

    If they go ahead and create female only area, they will be submitting to Sharia!

    How about a ‘migrant only’ zone – so the migrants could be in a safe area where nobody would ostracize them, accidentally slight them or enrage them with normal women’s clothing choices!

    It is, after all, for the safety and comfort of the migrants themselves!!!

  3. A no-migrants zone would be less PC, but probably more effective.

    Via violence, the proponents are slowly remaking Swedish society in their image.

    Wait, maybe not so slowly!
