United against violence against women

On last weekend’s show, you’ll no doubt have heard June talking about the United Nations International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, which took place on  Wednesday 25 November.

Since that date, 16 days of action have been taking place, one of which will be held right here in Newark next week.

Commemorating the 108 women killed by men in the UK since 25 November 2019, 108 pairs of women’s shoes will go on display in the Market Place at 8am on Wednesday 9 December. The names of those women, who can no longer see the sunrise or be there for their families and friends, will be read out and the event will of course be captured in photographs.

If you’d like to help mark this, it’s not too late to donate a pair of women’s shoes which, after the event, will either be given to a local charity or returned to the donor.

All you need to do is drop off the shoes at Carriages Café between 9am and 6pm on Friday 4 December – if you want your shoes returned, just make sure they are clearly marked with your name on stickers on the soles.

Watch this space for some of the photographs from the Newark event – in the meantime, if you want to find out more about this annual International Day, just follow this link
