On Wednesday the 25th November Gloucestershire Rape & Sexual Abuse Centre is holding a "Reclaim the Night" march. The march takes place at night as a protest against victim-blaming which tells women to stay off the streets at night if they don't want to be at risk of sexual violence or harassment. This Reclaim the Night flyer provides more information such as timings and the start and finish points of the march.
