Take Back The Night – Toronto

// 29 September 2008

Shameless Mag has posted a report and photos of Toronto’s Take Back The Night march.

Pike tells it like this:

Just being a part of a group of women come together in the spirit of resistance and survival – hell, not survival, but to flourish – was mind bending, especially since I’ve been hiding away for many months writing my Masters’ thesis. It was a great way to come back out into my community of allies, and I got to come with a friend who had never been to Take Back the Night before. It was hard to yell that oh-so-quiet word RAPE out loud walking down Queen Street West, but when we started chanting “Hey mister mister keep your hands off my sister!” it felt so good to have words this time when so many other times I didn’t.”

And Jessica posted her excellent photos of the march. There are some amazing photos up on Flickr as well…
