Reclaim The Night
We are proud to announce that Feminist Society are hosting Hampshire Reclaim the Night this Saturday 26 November, between 19:30-20:30 at East Park Terrace to raise awareness of women’s rights and to protest against the targeting of gender based violence and street harrassment.
The protest will begin and end in Southampton city centre, with the march going through the St Mary’s area, London Road and Bedford Place to end with a loop of Guildhall Square. Get together with your friends and housemates to wave banners and show your support.
If you are interested in finding out more about the cause, the society will be holding a Speaker’s Event before the march at 18:00 in The Art House, where you can hear from a variety of inspiring feminists.
After the march, we encourage you to get together with the other protesters to join the Benefit Gig from 20:45, also at The Art House Cafe. Tickets are just £5 on the door or you are welcome to pay by donation – all proceeds will be split evenly to local Hampshire charities including: Trinity, The Yellow Door and Aurora New Dawn.
