Reclaim march packs women’s punch for safer world
Last night, the city’s women were again out in force to peacefully protest against sexual violence towards women and children, and to promote women’s strength and survival.
The nights are traditionally organised by groups of volunteer women who work together in their communities to keep the marches going.
Reclaim the Night represents a claim for women’s basic human rights and a demand they be able to live in freedom from discrimination and fear of violence. Reclaim the Night parades have also taken place in Ballina, Byron Bay, Casino, Mullumbimby and Murwillumbah.
