2013 Reclaim the Night planning - join in!

The next Reclaim the Night march will be on March 15th 2013, just after International Women's Day and the Oxford International Women's Festival, and it will follow a month-long campaign to raise awareness about how as a community we can make a safe space for women to speak out about violence.

Reclaim the Night films and press coverage!

On Friday 28 October we marched through Oxford to Reclaim the Night, raising our voices to end violence against women.

The march got some great press coverage in the Oxford Mail, and the Oxford Journal.

Reclaim the Night this Friday 28 October 6.30pm!

The 2011 Oxfordshire Reclaim the Night march takes place this Friday evening, 28 October, meeting 6.30pm at Gloucester Green. We'll march around the city centre making a noise about violence against women, and tying decorative labels with messages about violence against women - and the phone number for Oxford Rape Crisis - onto railings and streetsigns. Bring your selves, your passion, your favourite chants, and placards and banners.

The march is women-only - for all who self-identify as women and experience gender violence as female-perceived.

Reclaim the Night 2011 launch gig

To launch this year’s Oxfordshire Reclaim the Night, a line up of local female artists will perform a special gig at The Port Mahon on Monday 10 October.
Performers will include poets Lucy Ayrton and Anna Hobson, Tamara and The Martyrs, jazz singer and pianist Rachel Hughes, acoustic guitar based singer songwriter Hannah Bruce, MC Exonic and Claudia and Jessie, an operatic aria performance (Mozart).
