The tragic death of 22-year-old woman Eurydice Dixon rocked Australia last week and has since sparked outrage across the nation surrounding the safety of women.
Tonight, a memorial vigil is being held in Adelaide, along with other major cities and small towns across the country, to mourn the death of the young Melbourne comedian and to take a stand against "sexual violence, gendered violence, and predation towards women".
Attendees are encouraged to bring their own candles and rug up for the night.
“A Vigil will be held at the Rotunda in Elder Park on Festival Drive as an opportunity for our community to come together to honour Eurydice Dixon and take a stand against sexual violence, gendered violence, and predation towards women. It is not up to us to keep ourselves safe - it’s up to men to choose not to inflict violence upon us,” the event reads.
“Join us for a candle light vigil in solidarity with the Melbourne and Sydney vigils for Eurydice Dixon. Bring your own candles and rug up.”
Where: Elder Park on Festival Drive (gather at the north side in and around the Rotunda)
When: Tonight, June 18th, 5pm - 7pm.
