Thank you all so much for your support of Take Back the Night 2013. Your excitement and (if you were there) presence are why our event continues to grow and evolve! We are extremely pleased about this years event, and are already brainstorming about 2014!
One thing we learned from this year is that we must approve all musical selection in advance. During our event, a guest performer used Robin Thicke’s song “Blurred Lines” without our pre-approval. This highly critiqued song celebrates and promotes the rape-supportive culture we are trying so hard to change with Women Take Back the Night, and we apologize to attendees of the event for not being more proactive by establishing clear expectations with our guest performers.
We hope to see you next year!
