Norwich Rose on the 14 February 2013 Part 1

Fire and rescue danced with everyone in Norwich at One Billion rising on the 14 February 2013. It was great to see so many people supporting an end to violence against women. Some people thankfully are never subjected to violence. One billion women on the planet earth are subjected to violence against them. The effects of violence against women is painful and harmful to the women and everyone in the community. Fire and rescue deal with the consequences of violence against women in many forms.
