Here are some of the pictures from a simple, beautiful event that encourages women at any stage of recovery to stand up and be proud, while at the same time, join with women around the globe in demanding more action on the daily threat of interpersonal and domestic violence. This is our third year of doing this and we were inspired by the recovery movement 'out from under the bridge' which encourages people in recovery to become more visible in their communites. We were also inspired by the women of the congo and ruand who met on a bridge which joins their two countries and joined hands, calling attention to the violence of war and its particular abuse of women. You can see and read more about this movement at www.enoughproject.org/International_Womens_Day
Here are some of the photographs from that event, held this year on 14th October.
