7 7 -The rise & rise of the Reclaim The Night movement in the UK

The origins of Reclaim the Night began in the USA in 1975. Back then it was called Take Back the Night, which was formed following the murder of a young woman called Susan Alexander Speeth in Philadelphia. Anne Pride (1942-1990) was a National Organisation for Women activists and Publisher. At an anti-violence rally in Pittsburgh, she read a memorial in which the line "Take Back the Night" was referenced, which later became the symbol for the movement. The response from the community, especially women, was to organise a march and take to the streets to raise awareness of male violence against women. A year later a conference was held in Brussels, Belgium. The conference was the International Tribunal on Crimes Against Women, was attended by 2000 women from 40 different countries. On the last night of the conference, the women present, angered by hearing testimonies of women facing violence throughout the world took to the streets of Brussels. News of the march began to spread throughout parts of Europe. The ripple effect of the march from the USA had spread across the pond, inspiring women to raise awareness and to fight back against male violence. A march was held in Rome, Italy, now called Reclaim the Night, then a year later in April,1977, another march took place in West Germany. Both marches were held in response to a rise in the number of sexual attacks on women. Later that year, the first Reclaim the Night march took place on the night of 12th November 1977 in Leeds, UK. 

Three years later, on the night of 17th November 1980 Peter Sutcliffe, aka The Yorkshire Ripper, murdered his final victim Jacqueline Kill in Leeds. The police response to the 13th murder was to warn women that they were putting themselves at risk at being out on the streets after dark. Women were outraged at the response from the police and a march was organized by a women’s movement called “Reclaim the Night”. The march involved a splinter group of women storming the screening at local cinema of “Dressed to Kill” where paint was thrown at the screen and pamphlets, demanding protection for women were strewn into the auditorium.

Other women super glued the keyholes of sex shops.

The night led to some women being arrested. Who were these women? What led their anger to take to the streets? What did their protest march achieve? What is their legacy from all those years ago when they protested on the streets of Leeds on that cold and dark night?
