In 2019, 58 women were killed by violence, 55 in 2020, and as of 5 July 2021, 21 women have been killed by violence in Australia. (source – Counting Dead Women Aus).
To this, Rebecca Morse says, “Violence against women has to stop. This year has seen a real awakening for women ready to take on men who have been violent towards them. The courage shown by women including Grace Tame, Brittany Higgins, and many others has ignited us around the country to walk and speak for those who no longer can.
Reclaim The Run is our way of bringing women, and the men who stand beside them, together to address how to call out disrespectful behaviour, language, and violence towards women.”
