The tragic death of 22-year-old woman Eurydice Dixon has rocked Australia and sparked outrage across the nation surrounding the safety of women.
Tonight, a memorial vigil is being held in Perth, 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 flowers.
“A vigil has been organised for Eurydice Dixon in Princes Park for Monday evening. In solidarity, there will be a sister vigil held in Perth. It will be at Hyde Park, in front of the stage area”, the event reads.
“Please bring flowers, candles, notes or anything you wish to remember Eurydice by, and all other women killed whilst going about their everyday lives.
“This is an occasion to grieve and to do so amongst people who too feel deeply affected by the senseless loss of yet another promising young woman, at the hands of a violent man.
“We have chosen Hyde Park as it as a place avoided by young women at night, in one of the many daily instances we practice 'situational awareness', and 'take responsibility for our safety’.”
