Dead Women Walking march – Sunday 23rd November 2014

This is a remembrance walk and we walked to represent the number of women killed in one year in the UK, there was a Red Rain Poncho for each woman representing a murdered woman and a candle bearing a name – the candles had their wicks cut off to comply with Health & Safety rules and remained UNLIT.

It was a wet day but about 85 women, 4 men and a few children walked down from Grosvenor Sq mostly in silence while the names of the dead women were read out.
