Abbey House Museum

Abbey Walk, Kirkstall, Leeds, West Yorkshire, LS5 3EH

This talk by Feminist Archive North reveals the history of the Reclaim the Night marches.

The first Reclaim The Night marches in England took place in 1977, an initiative of the Leeds Reclaim the Night group. The tradition remains to this day.

Women in the UK have carried on marching and campaigning and asserting our right to walk where we want when we want, without fear of attack and assault from men. Why do we still need to march?

 Tickets £5, booking required.

This talk is part of a programme of afternoon women's history talks linked to Abbey House Museum's 2018 exhibition A Woman's Place. 

The exhibition features stories and objects from strong pioneering women such as Leonora Cohen and Nicola Adams, from 1860 to the present day. Discover how everyday life has changed for women in the home, school and workplace.
