Reclaim the Night

Postponed til October 2016…

A feminist liberation march will take place in Oxford to ‘Reclaim the Night’ and spaces that women are told to be fearful of, or avoid because of fear of violence, sexual harassment or rape.

The march aims to raise awareness of the scale of violence against women in our society, the need to prevent it, and the need to ensure women and girls can live free from the fear or violence.

Further updates on the timings, route and related events will be published on: Reclaim the Night Oxford on Facebook and @OxfordRTN on Twitter.

(The march is open to all self-identifying women, people with non- binary gender identities and children, with opportunities for men to show support on the night.)

Watch this space for more…
