    To all the women who have given so much of their lives in the events leading towards peace and equality for all - I give thanks and salute you for your spirit and courage. The day set for women international is mainly to stop ignorance and to stop violence - Women support Men in this too and some Men (not the power hungry ones who want to send other people's children to fight their useless wars) also support Women - It was a beautiful day about empowering women, especially for those who don't have a clue what being empowered is about because they have lived their whole life suppressed. Yes we marched for peace and equality for the less fortunate, So that those who are holding the power can SEE it cannot be ignored anymore - Peace x

      This video is a moving glimpse into the life of Emma Humphreys, a woman who was a writer, campaigner and survivor of male violence. Aged only 17, she was jailed for killing, in self defense, her pimp who repeatedly raped her. She fought a historic struggle to overturn the murder conviction and on the 7th of July 1995 she walked free, greeted by crowds of cheering supporters. The story was front page news and was a landmark legal case. For 3 years after her release Emma was an active campaigner for Justice for Women. On the 11th of July 1998 Emma died in her sleep after an accidental overdose of prescription medication. After her death colleagues and friends from Justice for Women set up a memorial prize award in her memory to acknowledge the contribution of Emma and women like her who are working to end violence against women and children. Directed by Pratibha Parmar and edited by Nicholas Fernandez, the video uses existing archival materials of interviews with Emma Humphreys filmed by her lawyer Harriet Wistrich, newspaper clippings and television reports to create a powerful portrait of a woman whose life was shaped by her experience of male violence. The video is underpinned by a passionate evocation of her poetry read by actress Fiona Shaw. Visit - http://www.emmahumphreys.org/emmahumphreys/history.htm
