A SILENT VIGIL TO REMEMBER ALL WOMEN


A silent vigil for all women and girls who have died from, or are currently
living in, situations of male violence.

In sisterhood and solidarity we will stand alongside all women and girls
who have faced, and are currently living in contexts of exploitation,
genocide, racism, fascism, neo-colonialism, imperialism, and
militarization.

We will remember women and girls who are currently struggling against male
violence in places of war and conflict, including Afghanistan, Bolivia and
Latin America, Côte d'Ivoire, the Democratic Republic of the Congo,
Somalia, Sudan, Kashmir (Pakistan-India), Iran, Iraq, Mali, Niger,
Pakistan, Syria, and in the UK.

Date:            Friday 15 February 2013

Time:             6.30pm to 8pm

Location:       The Edith Cavell Statue, opposite the door of the National
Portrait Gallery, St.Martin’s Place, London WC2
