About

We believe in “the radical notion that women are people” (Cheris Kramarae and Paula Treichler) and that freedom of movement is a universal human right. Reclaim the night is about taking back this basic right, challenging oppressive attitudes and sending a message to all survivors of sexual violence, that they can speak out, they are not alone

The overall aim of this march is to stop violence against women. We believe that violence against women is preventable and reflective of unequal gender relations in our society. We hope to challenge the myths around responsibility of rape and gender violence, to highlight how common place violence against women is, and that the perpetrators are by far more likely to be known the to woman. We also want to celebrate feminism and create a positive environment whereby sympathetic and feminist men will engage in debate and feed into the violence against women movement in the UK.
