One Billion Rising – Sheffield

Yesterday I just happened to be in Sheffield and saw a beautiful demonstration/event in Sheffield Peace Gardens called ‘One Billion Rising‘.

Red ribbons were handed out by dancers from the Aim to Dance and Create  organisation who wore different shades of red and orange.  It was a colourful and vibrant affair aimed at stopping violence to women and girls around the world.

Violence against women is most often hidden from public view and so deep set within cultures. Where it is seen it is sometimes normalised, it works on many levels.

A wonderful and a big thank you to the organisers for putting on a wonderful campaign. Next year I would welcome a chance to come and photograph this special event of this very worthy cause.

Love and Peace x
