Over Five thousand marched from Belmore Park to Hyde Park yesterday, women, women with their sons, husbands, fathers and male friends hell I wouldn't have been surprised to see Justice Lee hovering on the fringes. It was good to see.  Chris Minns walked amongst the crowd. Malcolm Turnbull stood, amongst a crowd of women, mansplaining what his Government had done for  women .... yes you women to whoever would listen, not the women ... only the media... but why did it take 32 women to die so far this year for this to happen?

This rally, and those that started on Friday and continued on through to yesterday had been organised by Sarah Williams of the " "What Were You Wearing" a victim survivor herself.

32 Flowers were laid representing each woman killed in this country so far this year.

There were five demands

The declaration of a national emergency

Mandatory victim blaming prevention training for police, media and first responders

Alternative reporting options for violence victims  including specialist courts

The media to wait 48 hours before identifying violence victims.

For Government to give better, more sustainable funding for organisations with five year minimum commitments.

Enough!
