For me and the team that we have, it is important for us to show that we represent all women, and that they have a voice and a space within the movement.”

-Ronelle King

On March 11, 2017, Life In Leggings: Caribbean Alliance Against Gender-based Violence is calling for people to march across different Caribbean countries in solidarity with “survivors of gender-based violence, in memory of the women and girls who are no longer with us and to reclaim our streets for the generation of girls who have yet to grow up.”

Watch the Skype video interview we recorded with Ronelle King, co-founder of Life in leggings, to learn more about how #LifeinLeggings started, why people are marching and why it’s important to practice solidarity.
