Hundreds of women taking a stand against domestic violence participated in the 14th annual Brides March on the Grand Concourse Friday.
The survivors and supporters wore bride's dresses in memory of Gladys Ricart who was killed by a former boyfriend on her wedding day.

Walkers say the event is meant to raise awareness about abusive relationships.
