We have been called to create this march as 26 women have been killed in Australia so far in 2019!
Of those 26 women, Courtney Herron is the fourth female to have been killed in open space in Melbourne in less than a year along with Aiia Maasarwe, Eurydice Dixon and Natalina Angok.
At Australian Women’s Day we are walking the talk by saying enough is enough to this epidemic of violence against women. We are calling all women, men and children to come together to bring awareness to this untolerable displays of violence against women.

Why do we walk?
We walk for many things, first and foremost we walk for change. We walk to end violence against women. We walk to bring peace to our land.
We walk for love… We walk together, united as women looking for change.
