Fight for the Night (From Home)

What's occurring?

Every year, we march together during 16 Days of Action to demand action to make our streets safer and show solidarity to survivors of rape and sexual assault. This year, we're inviting you to take part from home. Let's fill our windows with banners, signs and lights, all together on 10 December at 4pm! 

We believe that, as women, trans and non-binary people and those presenting as female, we have the right to walk the streets at night without the fear of sexual and gendered violence. We want to protest against the stigma surrounding rape and sexual assault, the victim-blaming that goes alongside this and make our thoughts known on the appalling rape conviction rate in Scotland. 

We're also asking Universities, public institutions and businesses to join us and light up buildings across the country in purple - Strathclyde University has already confirmed they're taking part!

Let us know you're taking part by RSVPing to the Facebook event. If you would like to find some inspiration for your window display, or even craft as a group over Zoom, check out the banner-making event.

We'd also love to flood the event with photos and videos of your signs, windows and purple buildings - post them to the Facebook event.

This event is part of our 16 Days of Action Campaign.
