Running Shoes

Walking piece details

Running Shoes (2021) is a response to the current discourse around the safety of women. This issue was brought to the forefront on the 3rd of March 2021 when Sarah Everard was murdered and raped on her walk home. The murder of this young woman made people finally listen mostly because of the fact that she did everything in her power to remain safe. She was wearing gym clothes and running shoes.

The piece presents the spoken testimonies of a group of students from Glasgow that detail how unsafe they feel simply walking down the street.
