Meaningful Event in Aberdeen - Walk For Women

Walk For Women

What is it?
One hundred years ago thousands of women walked from all across Britain, starting from as far away as Lands End and Newcastle, converging in Hyde Park, London on the 26th July.
There were 50,000 women assembled in Hyde Park on that day in 1913. 
They were demonstrating to the government how many women wanted the right to vote.

What's the idea of the Walk?
The idea is to celebrate The idea is to celebrate those women this summer by gathering with a few, or with many, and walking.

Walk For Women Aberdeen CLICK
A group of women met at the Art Gallery at 1.00 pm last Saturday and walked meaningful miles around Aberdeen to mark 100 years since the 1913 assembly in Hyde Park to demonstrate for women's suffrage. I really appreciate these ladies and such a worthy idea!  
By the way, they looked so originally and authentic that people were coming across the street to take photos of them :-)
