In Canberra, women have been creating a walking memorial to acknowledge the victims of male violence.
The living memorial is an open invitation to walk the circumference of Parliament House, in acknowledgment of the absence of an actual memorial for women and girls. Wear black, take the route counter-clockwise (symbolically turning back the patriarchy), and post a photo (tag us @theschoolofvisibility using the hashtag #mondayatmidday so we can share it here).
And if you’re keen to get more people talking about why there’s no memorial, you can share this post.
Can’t get to Canberra? Here’s what Jane and Lily are up to in their community;
‘Lily and I made some noise on the bridge in Thirroul today.
Lots of support out there from women, and a few men. For some reason, tradies in utes would not make eye contact.’
Jane and Lily will be on the bridge every Monday and you’re very welcome to join them. Just show up on Monday at midday.
The School of Visibility headquarters are based in Canberra, Australia. We acknowledge the Ngunnawal and Ngambri people as the traditional owners of this land. We recognise that the land was never ceded. We support the Uluru Statement from the Heart and we pay our respect to Elders past and present.
