Take Back the Night is an international event with a mission of ending sexual violence and street harassment against women. Early marches were often deliberately women-only in order to symbolize women's individual walk though the darkness and to demonstrate to women that united they can resist fear and violence. Today however most marches include men and gender diverse individuals as they are part of the solution in ending violence against women.
