Thursday 6th December 6pm
Reclaim the Night
On the 6th December 2018 women from across Suffolk will march to Reclaim the Night. Just like many women before us we will raise our voices as one to demand an end to sexual violence.
We will come together to highlight the unacceptable levels of violence against women within our communities and throughout the world. We will demand the right to use our streets in safety on this night and every night. And we will call on our politicians, local businesses and organisations to do their part to end violence against women.
Members of Women’s Voices, Women’s Votes will be marching together carrying some of our home-made banners and pennants. If you’d like to march with us come and find us from 5.45pm near the ‘?’ statue outside the University of Suffolk’s Waterfront building.
The march will start at 6pm and head through the town centre, finishing back outside the University. There’s also an after party hosted at La Tour Cycle Café further down the Waterfront.
