Reclaim the Night

rtn%20leaflet%20FINAL.jpgI went on the sadly under-publicised — but successful — Reclaim the Night march on Friday.

Run by the London Feminist Network, Reclaim the Night is a women-only event that demands and celebrates womens’ right to walk the street at night, without the fear of rape.

It’s all been so hellish recently with the news on how a third of people in the UK think that drinking, flirting and dressing in a certain way makes a woman partially responsible for rape, and that having sex with an unconscious, drunk woman is okey-dokey. It’s easy to feel helpless to turn this creeping, foul tide.

Reclaim the Night was a fantastic, fun and uplifting event; I hope that next year it gets a big website and lots of postering. I would have loved to have blogged it ahead of time!
