The Women’s Resource Center invites everyone to be part of Take Back the Night. Executive Director Colleen Arnold says it’s an annual event that began and remains a form of protest against the violence women experience while walking in public at night. She says the purpose is to raise community awareness of this violence in order to prevent it from happening. Arnold says it has grown to not only include violence women face at night but rather the fear of violence in general. She adds they chose November 25th as it is the International Day Against Violence Against Women and the first day of the international campaign 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence.
The walk begins at 5:15 tomorrow evening at Pioneer Square. Walkers will go up Main Street to Angel Avenue and down Hapnot Street back to Pioneer Square.
