Empty shoes March to Wellington

70 % of the shoes are men’s while eight are small ones representating children aged between 10 and 14.


  1. The media has become very flowery.

    Its presentation is very subjective; if a women holds that opinion it is news. The opinion page invaded the news in that respect, and the objectivity went out the window.

    Bias, how could there be a perception of bias on that basis.

    It is provocative to men, it may have even crashed JP’s server more than once.

    The public picture held up here is representative of gender. That is the way it is reported here.

    Yes, for once we got a fair shot in the media. But it didn’t come from the media. It came from the public, and I hesitate to suggest that it was a women’s thinking that did it.

    Really? I don’t think that is right. Someone sat down and thought about it, and it may have been a woman, or it may not.

    Notice no attempt to attribute causes or common factors.
    Comments section include the but more women attempt so ts not a gender issue.

  3. Notice the recent increases corresponding with … and I wouldn’t say the new Child Support Legislation, but I would definitely say, action taken around it.

  4. All you have to do is appear to have attempted suicide to be in an equally distressing situation – do you see what they are doing?
