Nottingham’s biggest and loudest annual grassroots protest against street harassment, victim-blaming, and all forms of men’s violence against women
9 November 2019 | 6.30PM
RECLAIM THE NIGHT | NOTTINGHAM 2019
A women-only march protesting men’s violence against women will stomp, sing, dance and shout its way from Sneinton Market to Trinity Square at 7.00pm. Meet at 6.30pm at Sneinton Market.
The event will end with a Reclaim Rally at Trinity Square. The rally will celebrate and support women’s self-organised action against violence. Speakers will be women only and women are invited to assemble themselves proudly at the open speaking area in Trinity Square for this event. If men wish to join us, we ask that they maintain a respectful distance at the back.
Supportive men/self-defining men are invited to organise their own solidarity vigil elsewhere in the City Centre. Gather at 7pm outside the church in St Peter’s Square.
After the rally, women are welcome at Nottingham Women’s Centre to get warm, have a bite to eat, and socialise. This will be a women-only event.
ALL WOMEN WELCOME
Reclaim the Night welcomes all self-defining women, including women of all colours and cultures, of all religions or none, refugee and asylum-seeking women, women of any age, women who are disabled or not disabled, heterosexual women, lesbian women, trans women, bisexual women, women who are sex workers, and welcomes all people who have experienced misogynistic oppression as women (including non-binary and gender non-conforming people). We would love to see you there. Bring along your mothers, grandmothers, sisters, aunts, nieces, and daughters. The march route is wheelchair-accessible, as is the women centre for the after-event. Accompanied children of all genders are welcome.
STAYING SAFE AND HAVING FUN
Women who wish to can meet beforehand at Nottingham Women’s Centre, who will lead a group at 6.00pm walking down to Sneinton Market together for the march.
Women who cannot attend can still participate online! We’ll be live tweeting from the march at @RTNnottingham with the hashtag #RTNnotts
Reclaim the Night welcomes all self-defining women. If you would like us us to promote and share your events related to Reclaim the Night (eg banner making, or related activism) through our page or at the event, we will only do so if your event is similarly open and welcoming to all women.
