Vigil organizers wrote on Facebook: “All people deserve safety in this world. Unfortunately, we must once again mourn the loss of an innocent woman in a place we know. & # 39;

& # 39; Courtney Herron was an innocent woman who was reportedly taken out of our world violently and prematurely. We cannot simply allow her death to go unnoticed and unmarked. & # 39;

& # 39; We must stand together again in memory of Courtney Herron and the countless others who have been taken too quickly. We cannot allow this pattern to continue.

& # 39; These women are innocent. They are said to be killed simply because they are women. We cannot allow this to be unrecognized or unmarked. We must unite to remember those we have lost and to protect those who live in fear and are in danger every day. & # 39;

Mrs. Herron is the fourth young woman reportedly killed in a public place in Melbourne in the last 12 months, including the rape and murder in June of ambitious comedian Eurydice Dixon [22] in a neighboring suburb.

Death led to widespread calls for action to improve women's public safety.

Even police officers have said that the horrific crime showed that the attitude towards women in Australia had to change.

& # 39; What is it in our community that some men may think that it is still ok to attack women or take what they want from women? & # 39; Victorian police assistant commissioner Luke Cornelius said on Saturday.

& # 39; Violence against women is definitely about men's behavior. & # 39;
