Launch of the Barwon Month of Action and Reclaim the Night

Friday, 25 October 2019 - 6:00pm to 9:00pm

Reclaim the Night is a global women’s protest against men’s violence.

It allows women and their communities to come together to speak out against violence and to celebrate strength.

This year we raise our voices and acknowledge that women’s voices and stories have been silent.

We encourage all women of all identities, abilities, backgrounds and ages, to attend and join us for all or parts of the Walk that suit.

If you require support to participate eg: people care, hearing, Auslan or interpreting, contact your torches, banners, and loud voices.
