Reclaim the night tonight

WOMEN and children from across the region will gather in Lismore tonight to take part in the annual Reclaim the Night march.

The march started in the UK in the 1970s and gained momentum when a man called Peter Sutcliffe began murdering sex workers in and around Leeds.

The walk is held to send the message that woman should be able to walk anywhere and they should not be blamed or restricted because of the threat of violence.

Those wanting to participate should meet at the Lismore Women's Resource Centre, in the Laneway next to Dragonfly Cafe and Play Quest in Carrington St, Lismore, at 6pm tonight.
