Why We Reclaim the Night
Reclaim the Night started in the UK in 1977, when women marched through the streets in Leeds to protest a night-time curfew on women – the police’s response to the Yorkshire Ripper murders. Rather than asking men to stay at home, women were told to remain inside in order to be safe from violence. 40 years later we still march. We march to demand justice, we march against rape and sexual violence, and for a woman’s right to walk the streets without fear.

A recent survey by the young women’s magazine More in 2005 found that 95% of women don’t feel safe on the streets at night, and 65% don’t even feel safe during the day. 73% worry about being raped and almost half say they sometimes don’t want to go out because they fear for their own safety (reclaimthenight.co.uk). Reclaim the Night gives women a voice and a chance to take back the streets at night in a safe and empowering way. At Reclaim the Night, we demand the right to use public space without fear. Come and march for a better world, free from violence and abuse.
