A second rally on the Melbourne street where murder victim Jill Meagher was last seen alive has heard passionate calls to boost funding for women's shelters and support services.
More than 1000 people gathered outside Brunswick Town Hall on Sydney Road, close to where Ms Meagher was last seen walking before being raped and murdered in a nearby laneway.
It's the second Reclaim the Night rally to be held in the street since the high-profile September 2012 murder case drew widespread attention to violence against women.
Co-organiser Sarah Brocklesby told the crowd that funding for community services for women needed to be lifted with so many being victimised.
"It is important that we start to change the current culture of victim blaming and shaming of women who experience harassment and violence," she said.
The Saturday night event in Brunswick is part of the long-running Reclaim the Night movement that began in the 1970s.An earlier anniversary peace march for Ms Meagher and other victims was held on September 29 and drew thousands.
