Written by Este Yarmosh

Willimantic, Conn. - The Women's Center at Eastern Connecticut State University will host the University's annual Take Back the Night march, rally and speak-out on April 30.  The rally begins at 7 p.m. in the Student Center Café.  A candlelight vigil and march will convene at 8 p.m. at the Foster Clock Tower, and will include survivor testimonials.  The evening will also feature a coffeehouse and performance at 9 p.m. in the Student Center Café. 

The first Take Back the Night rally in the United States. started in San Francisco in 1978 following an anti-pornography conference.  Today, sexual assault victims' speak-outs are an inseparable part of Take Back the Night.  Throughout its history, Take Back the Night has inspired women and men to confront a myriad of social ills, including rape, sexual violence, domestic violence, violence against children and violence against women.
