Join us for London Reclaim the Night! Close down central London for women, put your feet on the streets to shout a loud NO to rape and all forms of male violence against women.

Violence against women continues to occur every minute of every day, but women everywhere are making a stand. Join us and join millions across the globe who will be marking the annual United Nations Day to End Violence Against Women (25th November) with demonstrations and marches in their own localities.

With ideological cuts threatening the refuge and rape crisis movements in the UK we need to take back the capital to demonstrate women’s support for essential women’s services, demand justice for survivors and spread the message that no woman is ever to blame for male violence against her.

Bring placards, banners, friends and song. March for your friends and family, your colleagues, your daughters, yourself – march for all of us; march for a better world, free from violence and abuse.

London Reclaim The Night is a women-only march. Men who would like to support the event are encouraged to help organise and join the Men’s Vigil (normally at the Edith Cavell Statue).

Meanwhile, if you live in London, you may be interested in joining the London Feminist Network. We are one of the largest grassroots feminist activist organisations in the country with over 1600 members. We hold monthly meetings, book groups and seminars, and we have a lively e-mail discussion group. We organise conferences and of course, Reclaim the Night. We are all volunteers and we are unfunded. We always welcome new members and new volunteers to get involved in making feminist things happen in our capital!
