Exuberant dancers of all ages and conditions filled Bucky Doo Square as part of International Women’s Day to ‘Break the Chain’ of violence against women worldwide.  The statistics are staggering and depressing.  One in three women worldwide will be beaten or raped in their lifetime and the conditions that cause such violence are deeply rooted in society.    For advice and help on Domestic Violence these numbers may be of help:
