6:30pm –March to End Gender-Based Violence



We have addressed the issue of gender-based violence in this blog before [link], and still maintain that although not all forms of gender violence result in death, all of them are serious, prevalent, and deserving of public outrage.  Violence against women is evidence of the ongoing legacy of unequal power relations between women and men.  Society’s tendency to diminish or ignore it is evidence that we haven’t evolved past that legacy.
