Lancs Live reports that around 50 people attended the peaceful and socially-distanced gathering on Monday (15 March).

Those in attendance spoke about their experiences and how more needs to be done to protect women in society.

Placards that remained on the Flag Market include “My safety, my night, my rights”, “Women’s rights are human rights”, and “I also like women and I don’t harass them”.

Sarah Everard disappeared in South London on 3 March while walking home from a friend’s house.

One week later, her remains were discovered in woodland near Ashford in Kent. A Metropolitan Police office has been charged with kidnapping and murder.

Sarah’s death has caused an outpouring of grief and anger across the country.

Women have been sharing their own experiences of walking the streets and being followed, catcalled, harassed, assaulted and exposed to – and the lengths they go to in order to feel safe.
