Day Eleven: Active in London

For the ten of the 16-Day Activism Campaign to fight violence on women, I want to share the pictures of an unexpected silent protest taking place in St Martin’s Place in London. This group of women were sitting at the Edith Cavell monument. Edith Cavell was a nurse during World War I, a pioneer in her profession and a patriotic famous for having saved the life of some 200 soldiers who were escaping from Germany-occupied Belgium. For this she was sentenced to death. But her famous words might be the reason why the group of activists decided to show support to the fight against gender-based violence: “I can’t stop while there are lives to be saved.”
