The posters arrived today for the 104 Pairs of Shoes Exhibition that will be touring Argyll during the month of March. 104 is a significant number, because 2 women are killed every week in the UK through domestic abuse. A horrific statistic. Women from all walks of life, including celebrities, health workers, politicians and others who work in the area of abuse have donated shoes, together with a “thought” or reflection on the topic. The idea is to raise awareness and get people talking so that the web of silence is broken and injustices can be faced and dealt with.
I hope that people are interested, feel compelled to go and look, and tell their friends about it.
So – Yes – this is an advertisement of a kind.
