From Rape Crisis Glasgow:

November is upon us again and once again this year, Rape Crisis is marking the 16 Days of Action for the Elimination of Violence Against Women on Monday 28th November 2011 with our annual Reclaim the Night march and rally.

The 16 Days of Action links 25th November, which is International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women and 10th December, International Human Rights Day so that we can recognise that violence against women is a violation of women’s human rights.  Along with groups worldwide, the staff and management of Rape Crisis are committed to …..

  • raising awareness about gender-based violence as a human rights issue at the local, national, regional and international levels
  • strengthening local work around violence against women
  • establishing a clear link between local and international work to end violence against women
  • providing a forum in which organizers can develop and share new and effective strategies
  • demonstrating the solidarity of women around the world organizing against violence against women
  • creating tools to pressure governments to implement promises made to eliminate violence against women

….. in our call for the elimination of all forms of violence against women – violence that includes rape, sexual assault, prostitution and pornography, trafficking, domestic abuse, female genital mutilation ……

Please take some time to check out the website of the Centre for Women’s Global Leadership on http://www.cwgl.rutgers.edu  for more information on what’s happening internationally between 25th November and 10th December 2011.

This year the route for the Reclaim the Night march in Glasgow will set off from Botanic Gardens corner of Great Western Road and Queen Margaret Drive at 6.30 pm, down Byres Road, University Avenue, Gibson Street, Eldon Street and will end with a rally in the STUC.  As always, there will be hot drinks, food, speeches and music at the end of the march.

PLEASE CASCADE THIS INFORMATION DOWN TO ANY COLLEAGUES YOU THINK MAY BE INTERESTED IN JOINING US ON THE MARCH – ALL WELCOME, THIS IS NOT A WOMEN ONLY EVENT
