Women reclaim the night

This badge was designed and distributed in the late 1970s. Reclaim the Night, also known as Take Back the Night in some countries, is a global protest movement against men’s violence towards women.

Established in the 1970s, the event encourages grassroots participation from all women to call for an end to gender inequality and demanding justice, support, and funding for victims of violence and abuse. This event is still held every year.
