Reclaim The Night, Basingstoke

11 August, 2012 @ 8pm

From the Facebook event page:

The Reclaim the Night Rally & March — the aim is to raise awareness about rape and sexual assault, as well as other forms of violence against women and the culture of victim blaming. Marches have been held in London, Manchester, Leeds, Oxford and various other towns and cities across the U.K and Europe — and now Reclaim the Night is coming to Basingstoke!

We will be meeting at the Band Stand in War Memorial Park at 8pm on Saturday 11th August, we will rally there and then march through the town centre, finishing at the fountains. Come down and support the cause. All welcome!

From the description of the London event on Reclaim The Night’s website:

All women are welcome at Reclaim the Night, including: women of all colours and cultures, of all religions or none, women of any age, disabled and non-disabled women, heterosexual women, lesbians, trans women, bisexual women, refugee and asylum-seeking women and any other women you can think of! We would love to see you all there. Bring along your mothers, grandmothers, sisters, aunts, nieces, and daughters.

We presume this applies to the Basingstoke event, and I’ve heard on the feminist grapevine that it’s FTM friendly. Come one, come all; we will rise! Doubtless to dramatic music.
