Despite a cold day. We had a strong turnout for a big campaigning day in locations around Chester. It took a while to get things warmed up as people were reluctant to stop. But soon it got busier and we had a steady stream of people to the stall.
We had some musical and historical accompaniment whilst we chatted to people around the town. There is often a Roman or two around the place giving historical context to the city of Chester. Help us be able to instruct the town crier that brexit is dead soon. #StopBrexit
The streets got busy as there were stalls celebrating #InternationalWomansDay and here are just 3 of our lovely key members of Chester for Europe enjoying the atmosphere.

On #InternationalWomensDay let's talk about Williamina Fleming (1857-1911).

#IWD2019 Williamina Fleming (1857-1911)
Williamina was born in Dundee, the daughter of a carver and gilder with premises in the Nethergate. She left school when she was 14 and became a pupil-teacher.

In 1877, Williamina married James Orr Fleming, an accountant and fellow Dundonian. She worked as a teacher for a short while, before the couple emigrated to America (specifically Boston, Massachusetts) when Williamina was 21.

It's a conscious choice "we're" making as parents, when "we" encourage our little boys to grow up strong💪, but not our little girls.
A choice that can only be interpreted as "I'm OK leaving *one* of you relatively unable to defend themselves in future."
If little boys and little girls were taught to pursue physical strength to the same extent, it wouldn't solve anything, but it would certainly make things a damn sight better.
For me, choosing to discriminate in that way, borders on parental neglect.
While we must fight evil with all we have, it isn't going anywhere. It hasn't in 5000s years. So wherever there's a power imbalance, there will be those who exploit it.
So I want the mind of every creep to contain the thought "That girl might kick my ass."
