Thousands March Against Femicide and Domestic Violence in Paris

Hundreds of thousands of people marched in Paris, France, on Saturday, November 23, against femicide, violence against women, and domestic violence, using the hashtag “NousToutes,” or “all of us,” according to reports.

The BBC reported that domestic violence rates in France are among the highest in western-European countries and that 115 women were killed by their partner or ex in the country in 2019.

The marchers, most of whom were women, wore purple and carried signs demanding justice for victims of violence. Reports said the protesters and activists are urging the government to finance emergency housing and psychological support for victims, including children, and demanding swifter legal justice and higher-priority consideration for cases involving domestic violence.
