Reclaim the Night speakers event: Video

Here are some of the highlights from the Reclaim the Night speakers event, which took place in the Arthouse Cafe in Southampton. We heard from women from Aurora New Dawn, Yellow Door, and two local poets.

Shona set up Aurora New Dawn in southampton, and attended the event to speak about the issue of sexual violence, domestic abuse and street harassment. Watch the video below to hear some of what she had to say:

Aurora New Dawn is a charity set up to help survivors of sexual violence and domestic violence. You can visit them at http://www.aurorand.org.uk/ for more information.

Hollie is a domestic and sexual abuse survivor, and came along to the march to support, as well as to perform some of her own poems surrounding the issue of domestic abuse and sexual violence. Watch the video below to hear one of those poems:
