For at least one Chatham-Kent family, fighting violence against women transcends generations.
Heidi Vidler, her daughter Sara Vidler and her grandchildren, Ravyn and Addison Doughty, marched on the Parry Bridge over the Thames River Friday as part of the Zonta Club of Chatham-Kent’s Say NO to Violence Against Women rally.
“I’ve been in the military for 28 years and this is the kind of stuff we fight against,” said Heidi Vidler. “I want my girls to know that it’s just as important for them when they grow up.”
The rally was against all types of violence and abuse against women across the world, including child brides, genital mutilation and sexual violence.
