Today students at the University of Scranton took part in Take Back the Night by holding a rally where victims and anti-violence advocates could make their voices heard about the issue.
"It's really important because about one in four women will experience some sort of interpersonal violence in their life and one in 10 men. That's a lot of people. So it's important to have their voices heard and to make it known that we hear them and that their stories are being heard and valued," said Kaycee O'Neil of the Jane Kopas Women's Center.
Take Back the Night is a nonprofit organization and movement that aims to end sexual and interpersonal violence of all kinds. Part of Take Back the Night is a clothesline project where victims of violence can share parts of their stories on t-shirts and then hang them up.
