2011 Take Back the Night

The city of Windsor is called into action in a march to end violence against women and children in the annual Take Back the Night march which will take place on October 22nd, 2011.

Take Back the Night marches can be traced globally, having originated in the United States in 1975. The significance of these marches is the women-only presence, making the marches symbolic of women’s voices and physical presence in the street at night. It allows for their voices to be heard publicly, to raise awareness on sexual violence, and to support survivors in their healing process.

Men are asked to show their support by participating in the rally but not to march. People of all ages, races, religions, backgrounds and genders are welcome to attend this free event and join us as we work toward a violence-free world
