Reclaim The Night Leeds will hold its 44th annual march campaigning for women's safety on the streets

A group that has been campaigning for women's safety on the streets of Leeds for more than 40 years will hold a protest march later this month.

Thursday, 4th November 2021, 11:45 am

Reclaim The Night Leeds will march from Woodhouse Moor through the city centre and to the Town Hall on Saturday November 27 in what will be its 44th annual march.

The event is part of the group's campaign to create a society where women walk freely at any time, and live in homes and on streets safely.

However, the work of the group which started in the late 1970s has had more relevance than ever in the last couple of years with the cases of Sarah Everard who was murdered by serving police-man Wayne Couzens in March as she walked home and primary school teacher Sabina Nessa who was murdered in September as she walked to a bar to meet a friend.

"The violence in our streets, in our homes, and in our schools has only increased in the last year and we demand action. True action. From our politicians, or council representative and from our police."

Exact times and locations will be confirmed closer to the event, said the group as well as details of opportunities for the public to volunteer with them.
