Take Back the Night 19 December 2014

Take Back the Night

During the month of September, Voices for Women hosted the Take Back the Night Champagne for the Greater City of Sudbury.  It was a day of empowerment for women in Sudbury, the event began with a clothesline project which honored the courage and strength of survivors of sexual and domestic violence by hanging t-shirts designed for women to tell their stories or share empowering messages to other women. Take Back the Night is an international event and non-profit organization with the mission of ending sexual violence in all forms. Hundreds of events are held in over 30 countries annually. Events often include marches, rallies and vigils intended as a protest and direct action against rape and other forms of sexual violence.
