Honk If You Want To “Take Back The Night”
A small but vocal group got drivers' attention Friday during the 5 p.m. commute in Hamilton. "Take Back The Night" is a worldwide series of rallies and demonstrations bringing attention to sexual violence and gender issues. The theme this year in the Bitterroot was to emphasize consent in sexual relations. Drivers honked their support for the group.
Over the years, the rallies have been held at Legion Park, by the Bitterroot River and City Hall. According to the Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network, a sexual assault occurs every 98 seconds in the United States.
