About the Event
THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED DUE TO LOW NUMBERS AND ALSO WHILST WE AWAIT MORE INFORMATION ON CORONAVIRUS FROM THE FEDERATION.
Our Ladies Who Lobby group invite all of you to join them at this year's Million Women Rise march.
The Million Women Rise website ( http://www.millionwomenrise.com/ ) has some alarming statistics - 1 in 4 women will experience violence from a man, 2 women are killed every week by a partner or ex partner and 1 in 4 women will be sexually assaulted as an adult. There are many more shocking numbers - please check it out.
The march is all about raising awareness of these issues and the demands for government and local authorities to protect women. You can read about these here: http://www.millionwomenrise.com/demands.html . This year's theme is Justice - to remember all those women who have lost their lives to violent men.

March - 1.15 - the march will commence in the direction of Trafalgar Square
