Reclaim The Night, This Saturday!

Women of London! Women of Britain! It’s time to dust off your banner and wrap up warm, because Reclaim The Night is here again.

Saturday 21st November will see women gather at 6.30pm at Whitehall Place, Central London for the women’s march to the Camden Centre in Kings Cross. From that point onwards there will be a mixed rally and a party until late.

And to remind us why we still need to Reclaim the Night, a quote from RTN’s own website;

“In every sphere of life we negotiate the threat or reality of rape, sexual assault and sexual harassment. We cannot claim equal citizenship while this threat restricts our lives as it does. We demand the right to use public space without fear. We demand this right as a civil liberty, we demand this as a human right.”

Find out more at www.reclaimthenight.org and on The F Word (where they discuss the use of the term ‘women only’ used by RTN)

Edit: Just found this incredibly strong and moving piece from Hannah Nicklin about exactly why she will be attending the march, and why you should too.
