Hundreds gathered Sunday night in a "Take back the night" march that went from Rabin Square and culminated in Tel Aviv's Cinematheque square. The rally was to mark World Awareness Day for Violence Against Women. The crowd was a mix of genders, races, activists and politicians all uniting against the injustice of violence towards women.
A stage was set up for speakers, activists, and women who gave speeches, poems, and demonstrations.
Meretz leader MK Zehava Gal-On spoke to the crowd to advocate for women and to fight violence of any kind. Happy with the turnout, the MK said "its amazing so many people gathered here against violence towards women."
Meretz members stood in the crowd holding signs of support."I am here tonight to stop violence against women, rapes, chauvinism and sexism," said Nitay Sheinenzon, a member of the party.
