Thursdays in Black
Thursdays In Black is an international movement making public the many forms of "personal" violence against women - wife battering, female circumcision, pornography, sexual assault, rape, dowry burning. The campaign focuses on ways that the individual can challenge attitudes to rape and violence, and reinforces at both a personal and a public level that there is something wrong with a world that will allow the human rights of women, men and children to be abused.
Wearing black on Thursday’s indicates a solidarity with victims of violence and a intention to create a community where we can all walk safely without fear of violence due to sexual orientation, political affiliation, gender or ethnicity. It shows that you want to be free!
