Leeds councillor looks back to Reclaim the Night marches of 1970s

City chiefs have promised to make Leeds “safer for all” as a new campaign aimed at women’s safety launches across 500 venues.

Ask for Angela will give women and girls a discreet way to ask bar staff for help if they begin to feel uncomfortable or unsafe in a venue.

Among those backing the scheme is Coun Al Garthwaite, who discussed her involvement in the first Reclaim the Night marches to promote women’s safety back in 1977.
