Welcome to the #theshowisover.

An initiative started in November 2017, a #metoo movement for women* in circus. It’s a petition to stop sexual harassment and/or male violence women* have experienced in our professions or while studying to become professionals within the circus milieu. It started as a secret group on Facebook where women* could share their testimonials or email them anonymously. All testimonials were gathered and are now archived in a safe place. A petition was created and you can find it here in different languages. Right now at this point almost 900 women* from over 30 different countries have signed the petition in support of the cause. Our aims are the same as our demands in the petition.

* The petition concerns women, non-binary people and anyone who identifies as female.
