Happy International Women’s day!
Sadly it’s still necessary for Women around the world to campaign and fight to end violence against them. To this end Million Women Rise still needs to happen. The march in central London yesterday went off without incident. This despite the lack of any policing of the route, and the presence of additional thousands marching against climate change at the same time.
It was great to see so many women out supporting the cause and also to get lots of support from members of the public along the route. The march was good natured and noisy, the speeches inspiring.
On the march:
In Trafalgar Square:
All sights set on the goal that in our lifetime there will indeed be an end to male violence against women around the world, and we’ll be marching to celebrate that instead…
