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.
