The Women’s March in London: Sisters Assemble!

It was very heartening to see the groundswell of support all over the world for the Women’s Marches, easily outstripping the rather subdued turnout for President Trump’s inauguration, which was rather the point. It was a true family affair with women, men, children, and LGBTQ people of all ages venturing out to support peace and demonstrate solidarity with Washington DC’s Women’s March.

Central London came to a glorious standstill as 100,000 protestors took to the streets with pink pussy hats and funny placards and banners. Many took the theme of reproductive rights, offering support to women in Ireland, where abortion rights are severely restricted, and with Planned Parenthood clinics in the US, currently bracing themselves for Trump’s legislation: ‘There Will Be Hell Toupee’, ‘We Shall Overcomb’, ‘Super Callous Fragile Ego, Trump You Are Atrocious’, being but three that went viral.

SEEN’s personal favourite was ‘A Woman’s Place is in the Revolution’. If the election of President Trump is beneficial in any way, it will be in the mobilisation of feminists worldwide and the politicisation of younger men and women who don’t want to see their human rights diminished by virtue of their gender.

Dinny Hall: A Shining Star

SEEN had the privilege recently, of hearing iconic jeweller Dinny Hall speak about her life and career in jewellery and design. She started off in the seventies when jewellery didn’t have the profile it has now, so in that sense she was very much a pioneer. She hung out with the cool musicians of the …
