Take Back the Night sends a message in Barrie

At least 200 women took to the streets of downtown Barrie on Thursday for the annual Take Back the Night event.

Hosted by Athena's Sexual Assault Counselling & Advocacy Centre, the rally is part of a global protest calling on communities to recognize women's rights to live without fear of violence.

The 17th annual event began at City Hall with guest speakers and took participants through downtown streets.
