Take Back the Night

1 in 3 women worldwide experience some form of sexual violence or intimate partner violence.

1 in 6 men experience sexual violence.

Less than 50% of victims report these crimes.

Each year in October, The Lotus Centre organizes a March and Rally to help increase the awareness of sexualized violence.

These events are held across the world to support the right to walk in safety without fear of violence.
