Devon Rape Crisis Service, Exeter Feminists, Exeter University Feminist Society and SAFE (Stop Abuse For Everyone) came together in a spirit of unity to make a great impact on the streets of Exeter.

The streets were filled with the pulsating sounds of drums and chants calling for an end to intimidation, harassment and violence against women.

A cacophony of energy, voices and belief came together to change the world - starting in Exeter.

More than three hundred women and supporters ensured the late night Christmas shoppers of the city were left in no doubt about the rights of women to feel safe on our streets.

They demanded the right to use public spaces without fear as part of sixteen days of international action, a global campaign that links the United Nations International Day of the Elimination of Violence against Women and International Human Rights Day.

The aim - to put women's safety on the agenda every night of the year. While women's lives are being restricted by the threat or reality of rape, sexual harassment and intimidation they cannot claim equal citizenship.

What People Say About Us

"I think EMDR has allowed me to process things far more than I was expecting, it was more effective than I was anticipating and I was surprised at how much different I felt after having it."

"DRCSAS has made a massive difference, I feel I have found myself – no longer just focused on what happened to me. I deal with things so much better and have a positive outlook on life that wouldn't have happened without DRCSAS."

"I feel positive about the future, being able to control my thoughts and emotions rather than them controlling me. I was sceptical at first wondering if it would work but I am amazed at the results. Would definitely recommend to anyone"
