Charity march in Watford High Street to end violence against women campaign One Billion Rising
Members of the Watford Women’s Centre took to the streets in Watford to mark campaign One Billion Rising
Campaigners from a women’s charity danced down Watford High Street to mark a world campaign to end violence against women.
Members of the Watford Women’s Centre took to the streets in Watford last week to mark One Billion Rising, a global campaign to stop abuse against women.
Watford New Hope Trust (WNHT) also joined in on the event, as they plan to open a women’s refuge for those who have become homeless as a result of domestic abuse.
Tracy Burke, CEO of the women’s centre said: "We were delighted to welcome WNHT on board the first of what we are determined will become an annual event to challenge violence against women across the world.’
