There was a great crowd at the ninth annual Reclaim the Night march and rally organised by the Northern TUC Women’s Group on Saturday 21st November. On a bitterly cold night around 150 supporters turned out to mark the United Nations International Day to End Violence Against Women.
Speakers included Dr Ruth Lewis a Senior Lecturer and Programme Leader in Sociology at Northumbria University. With colleagues at Northumbria University, Ruth is working to address ‘lad culture’ to try to make students’ experiences of university safe, welcoming and respectful - and Jenni Yuill, a local activist and teacher based in Hartlepool who spoke about the No More Page 3 Campaign.
Arriving at Sport Central following the march, attendees were welcomed by Julia Charlton, Chair of the Women’s Group
