One Billion Rising
GWA held a One Billion Rising event at St Andrews in the Square on the 14th of February. We were joined by Johann Lamont, Karen Dunbar, SheBoom, Wild Women Writing and Achoired Taste. OBR events were held in over 200 countries to demand an end to Gender Based Violence. 1:3 women will experience rape and sexual assault at some point in their lives. More photos are on the GWA Facebook page.
