Join TUC womens' group and join millions across the globe who will be marking the annual United Nations Day to End Violence Against Women (25th November) with demonstrations and marches. Reclaim the Night came to the UK 40 years ago, in 1977. One of the first marches took place in Leeds where women took to the streets to protest the police requesting women to stay at home after dark in response to the Yorkshire Ripper murders. Placards read "No curfew on women – curfew on men".

It is hard to believe we are still marching 41 years later, yet the recent outpouring of #MeToo on social media only makes it clear why this is important. The statistics speak for themselves: two women a week are killed by their male partner or ex-partner. One in three women experience sexual abuse of some kind in their lifetime.

This is unacceptable and must stop. For more info on campaigns around this, please see here: https://www.tuc.org.uk/blogs/un-international-day-elimination-violence-against-women-%E2%80%93-unions-must-be-part-solution
