Women are unable to enjoy their basic right to walk down a street at any time without fear of experiencing some form of violence. Freedom of movement and the right to safety and security are preconditions for democracy.
As part of 16 Days of No Violence Against Women and Children, Gender Links (GL) in partnership with Gender and Media Southern Africa Network (GEMSA), is taking back the night. During Take back the night campaign women and men march in down a dangerous street reclaiming their basic rights to freedom of movement and safety!
* For women to reclaim their right to safety.
* Working with local government and other stakeholders to take back dangerous streets in cities and towns across Southern Africa.
* Speak out against all forms of violence within and outside the home.
