Earlier this month, women took to the streets of Liverpool as part of Reclaim the Night: an international protest movement seeking to end violence against women, including street harassment and rape culture. The protests came to the UK from Germany in 1977 and were held across Leeds, York, Bristol, Manchester, Newcastle, Brighton and London.

The Liverpool event is now in its fifth year. A reader sent The Sphinx some photos of the event; all credits to Liam Joelson for these amazing images.
