Overview


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. After hosting Fight for the Night (at Home) in 2020, we are excited to be heading out to the streets to march.

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. With the rise in reports of spiking and violence towards women, this is more important than ever.

 Important Information

We are currently awaiting approval from Glasgow City Council for the March - more details will be shared shortly.

Below is the route. We will be meeting in Kelvingrove Park at the Prince of Wales Bridge at 6pm, with a view to leave by 6:15pm.

There will be regular stops throughout the procession to allow for people to rest, or to join the march later. 

At the end of the march, there will be a short rally in George Square. Attendees are then invited to come back to Strath Union for teas, coffee and snacks. We will also be hearing from representatives from a number of different organisations, including Glasgow Women's Aid and Glasgow & Clyde Rape Crisis. 

Safety Precautions

It will be cold and has the potential to be wet - please wear appropriate footwear and layers, including waterproofs if necessary. The lighting in the park is limited, so it's advisable to bring a torch or phone with a light - we will also be providing torches at the event. 

Before and after the march, please make sure that you get some safely. Kelvingrove and George Square are both near several public transport options - we would also recommend travelling with others if possible. 

As the COVID pandemic is still ongoing, we would advise attendees to wear facemasks, unless exempt, and to maintain a distance of 2 metres as much as possible. We will be reviewing the safety of this event alongside government guidance.
