A group of supporters joined the Women’s Resource Center for Take Back the Night in Pioneer Square Friday evening. Social Work Student at the Center Rachelle Fox told them they were there to unite their voices and to demand their right to lives free of fear, murder and violence against women and children. She said they believe that violence against women is not inevitable, they believe in safe communities for everyone regardless of their age, religion, race, sexual orientation or gender, they believe in the right to a world free of sexual violence, they believe that by standing together they will affect change. She said tonight they have chosen hope over fear saying accepting violence against women is not an option and they will not allow it to continue.
Fox added every woman and girl deserves a life free of violence. The group left Pioneer Square, marched down Main Street, up Angel Avenue and down Hapnot Street back to Pioneer Square.
