The Women’s Resource Center is inviting everyone to be part of Take Back the Night Monday. Executive Director Colleen Arnold says it’s an annual event to resist violence against women and children. She explains Take Back the Night is a movement with marches held across the globe which was sparked by the death of Susan Speeth, a Philadelphia woman who was attacked by a stranger when she walked back from work at night. She says they walk for our sisters, our daughters, our nieces, our mothers and ourselves to show women have the right to walk the streets at night without fear.
The walk begins Monday night at 7 at Pioneer Square. Walkers will go up Main Street to Angel Avenue and down Hapnot Street back to Pioneer Square.
