“I march at Take Back the Night because I’m part of the statistic – one in three women. I think all women deserve to feel safe and secure in their environment, and coming here has helped me feel that way. Since my sexual assault, I’ve been told to be careful, be afraid, to watch out, so it won’t happen again. It was never my fault and I don’t want other women who’ve gone through that to feel like it’s ever their fault. I do this for them.” – Britt
