million women rising

i did the production procurement, management and organising for million women rise 2009 (did it last year too).. million women rising is a broad and very eclectic uk campaign.. against male domestic violence on women.

a fantastic campaign and an inspiring day, a real privilege to be asked to work on this project again... loved every minute. congratulations to million women rise, sabrina, val, ange.. bridget and everyone else that had a part in making this happen, onwards and upwards.

and while working.. managed to grab some snaps:
