Reclaim the Night solidarity march
Fifty determined women and men marched through Leicester on 24 November as part of international action in support of the 'Reclaim the Night' campaign.
This was organised locally by the University of Leicester Feminist Society to raise awareness of the prevalence and normalisation of rape in society. Enthusiastic students took part, marching through the streets chanting 'yes means yes, no means no!'
Many young people are drawing socialist conclusions and seeing the link between the global crisis in capitalism and worsening conditions for women.
Socialist Party members took part in the march by distributing leaflets and selling the Socialist, the only political material on offer, and were welcomed by demonstrators.
