The timetable for the Reclaim the Night march on 11th October has now been finalised and looks like this:-
6.30 – 7.30 Men’s Discussion Group and Pre-march gathering (seperate venues, the discussion group will be held at the Wash Bar on the Mound)
7.30 – 8.30 March to begin on Lothian Road (Men to join at the Mound). March to the Meadows.
8.30-9.00 Rally in the Meadows.
9.30- After Party. Venue TBC.
During the march, discussions and rally we hope to show how various forms of women’s oppression are linked up. To make make clear the links between, for example, objectification of women in advertising and the culture in which violence against women is made acceptable.
The Edinburgh Feminist Network got the idea for the discussion group from a Reclaim the Night march held at Columbia University in New York and so I hope to make contact with the facilitators of that group ahead of the march.
