Life In Leggings' Women's Solidarity March

2017 seems to have started as a year of activism. This is not only true in my home country but all over the world. There have been marches for political reasons, environmental causes, civil rights issues, etc. The list goes on and on. In the spirit of International Women's Month, I thought that I should share a relevant and worthwhile cause. 

The Life in Leggings movement began with a simple hastag, #lifeinleggings. This humble phrase soon went viral as women used it to speak out in solidarity against misogyny, harassment and gender based violence. Along the way, this social movement morphed into “Life In Leggings: Caribbean Alliance Against Gender Based Violence”, a registered charity in Barbados tackling the rape culture and gender-based violence in the Caribbean region.

On March 11, women and men in Barbados, Antigua & Barbuda, Trinidad & Tobago, Dominica, The Bahamas, Guyana and Jamaica hit the streets in the Reclaim Our Streets: Women's Solidarity March. I was happy to be there to support the cause. Enjoy the slideshow below.

Let's keep this momentum going.



And one more bonus "triptych" image....not even a passing shower could stop this cause or the photographers out shooting that day....

Until next time...
