The annual Take Back the Night March happens in Owen Sound this evening.

Women and supporters will march through the city to bring attention to the problem of domestic violence and crimes against women.

Organizer Shawna Cox says they’re going to stop at five specific spots in the downtown area where women have been assaulted.

She says the march is a show of strength and solidarity.

“Because together we’re strong we’re a louder voice and it’s a way for us to point out to the community that we need more support and attention to this issue and we need to work together,” says Cox.

The Take Back the Night March starts at 6:30pm this evening at the Owen Sound farmers market.
