Black is the colour that we wear,
Black, the colour that speaks our resistance.
Silence is the language that we speak,
Silence, a language that voices our anguish

About Women in Black

Women in Black is an international movement that began in Tel-Aviv, in Haifa, in Jerusalem when Palestine and Israeli Women stood protesting against the Israeli Occupation and for a Palestinian homeland. The movement slowly spread to other areas of conflict around the world like Europe, South East Asia and South Asia. Inspired by the movement, the Women in Black, India stood protesting all forms of wars and violence. It began by protesting against communal violence and from there on all forms of violence against women. It has stood in solidarity with other global issues of war and violence.
