Overview:

Organize an action day across the city. The goals is to have every woman  to join in wearing words that have been used during  Bullying behaviour toward women of all ages. 
Each woman takes a word and a photo of a bullied person/woman /relative and wears this word(s) for an hour, a week or a year,  to symbolize her willingness to share this persons load of pain caused by the shame and blame and guilt that such bullying produces.
Money used to advertise the cause , to provide support services and kits to participating community groups.
this action is my response to the bullying suicide death of Amanda Todd and all the murders and deaths in Victoria including Rena Veerk's.

The mission is to raise awareness and reduce the incidence of teen suicide. to make it 'not cool' to bully . To put the heat on all bullying behaviour. To raise my consciousness as well
