Take back the night

THERE wasn't a woman in the country not affected by the tragic rape and murder of Melbourne woman Jill Meagher last month.

Next week, the Gladstone community has the chance to make a stand against sexual violence.

Reclaim the Night will take place on Friday.

Robyn Liddell from Gladstone Sexual Assault Service said it would be great to see community involvement.

"We will gather and march together. There's a lot we can do to make a difference."

Walkers will gather at the Community Advisory Service on Osaka Lane at 6pm before the march starts up Goondoon St at 6.30pm.

A rally at 7pm at Library Square include speeches, candle ceremony and songs.
