Press release

On Wednesday the 30th November 25 Loacl people gathered together to say No More 1 in 3 as part of the 16 Days of Activism against Gender-based violence.

Why 1 in 3?

Because we know that, globally, 1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men have been subjected to physical or sexual violence at least once in their life; that in the UK 1 in 2 women and 1 in 5 men feel unsafe walking alone after dark in a busy public place, and that 1 in 5 girls feel unsafe at school.

Organised by Revd Gennie Evans of St Serf’s Episcopal church and Revd Criag Dobney, of Comrie Parish Church 25 folk stood, in solidarity and remembered all sorts of people  affected by violence and called for a change.  Many also prayed out loud. The Episocpal Bishop of St Andrews, Dunblane and Dunkeld,  Ian Paton  spoke of how we can change this.

Together we can end abuse and violence.
