Please support Karen Ingala Smith and Counting Dead Women
On Monday 25th November it is the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women. Karen Ingala Smith will be highlighting women killed through men’s violence in 2013. Please support her.
She writes: “Starting at 6.00am, on the twitter account @countdeadwomen, I’ll be going through the UK’s diary of women killed by men. I’ll be starting with the 2nd January when Janelle Duncan Bailey, was strangled by ex-boyfriend Jerome McDonald, moving on to 3rd January at 6.10, when Akua Agyuman died, two months after being stabbed in the chest and abdomen by her husband Minta Adiddo. Every 10 minutes, I’ll move through the year to commemorate all the women who I have found who were killed though men’s violence. So far I know of 112 women killed this year, so I’ll still be tweeting at midnight.
I’d massively appreciate if you could circulate this information through your networks and if you’re on twitter, please tweet support or re-tweet.
Thank you all for your support. We’ve reached 2,500 signatures now but I’m still the one doing the counting. As I’ve said all along, I’ll keep doing it, until I’m convinced the government is doing enough! ”
