The belief that anyone “asks” to be abused and the complacency that relegate domestic violence to “a family matter” is why Take Back the Night is marching into another decade.
On Friday, April 24 a host or organizations and individuals organized by Women Helping Women of Cincinnati and the Women's Crisis Center of Northern Kentucky will meet at the Peace Bell in Newport at 6 p.m. and march to Fountain Square in Cincinnati. The event lasts until 10 p.m.
Increasing community awareness about sexual assault “while empowering, unifying and freeing those who have survived incest, rape or assault and honoring those who have not,” is the goal, according to an announcement provided by the Cincinnati’ chapter of the National Organization of Women.
Can’t march? Then just head to the square; listen to the speakers and talk to survivors and services providers to increase your knowledge or find a way to get involved.
