Women and men reclaim the Beltline streets and sidewalks on Sept. 19, marching 10 blocks without fear of abuse, assault, or rape in the evening, a time that's been a source of terror for many victims of gender-based violence. Take Back the Night's annual protest, which started at 8 p.m, celebrates the issue of resistance and creates a platform where indigenous women, women of colour, and Caucasian women can voice their experiences, fears and hopes for the future.
