    In the spirit of remembering all women who have been murdered by men, and working toward a world without violence against women, we pledge to keep our vigil a safe and welcoming place for all women who have experienced violence or abuse. As such, we do not allow any displays of hatred, hostility or prejudice based on race, ethnicity, religion, culture, language, sex, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status or disability. Anyone displaying any such sentiments will be asked to leave the vigil site. Thank you for respecting our request and cooperating to keep the vigil a safe and inclusive environment.
