GUWAHATI, Nov 15 - Over 100 women from the city participated in �Reclaim The Night.. Run!� which was flagged off by Deepak Kumar, Commissioner of Police, Guwahati, and Milind Soman, Pinkathon founder and supermodel, on Thursday evening.
The run is a symbol of reclamation, empowerment, and the start of a new movement. The purpose of the �Reclaim The Night.. Run! is twofold � to inspire a change of thought in every individual and to begin a cultural revolution.
�Every woman who was a part of this run learnt that all spaces are theirs to be claimed and it is time to forego the stereotype of a woman being confined to the indoors after dark.
As long as appropriate precautions are taken on a personal level, there are no spaces that cannot be explored, no avenue that cannot be touched, and no one that can be stopped from exercising their free will,� the organisers said in a statement.
