France’s shame – massive Paris protest march today

Today, Saturday November 23rd, women (and I hope men and boys) engaged in protest marches all across the country against violence and femicide towards women. As much as I wanted to join the Paris march, I was unavailable today.

Read this article below, it reiterates everything I posted in my November 17 and September 19 posts.

France has among the highest rates in Europe of domestic violence. This is thought to be down in part to the poor police response to reports of abuse. Many of the women killed this year had previously sought help from police, it has been reported.
