Most women councillors at the City of Edinburgh Council wore black today showing their support for the #timesup campaign
SNP Councillor Cathy Fullerton explained the reason behind today’s move by women councillors from the Labour, Green and SNP groups represented on the council.
She said : “For me it’s about tackling inequality and injustice in the hope that every workplace improves their safety and equality at work.
“I understand wearing black is historically a protest colour, but it was interesting to see many people at the BAFTAs recently wearing white roses. For me that is a significant gesture for peace and resistance.”
