We’re standing up to sexual harassment and we want to help you do it too.
Enough is enough. We’re standing up to sexual harassment and inappropriate behaviour and we want to help you to do it too. We’ve pulled together helpful resources on how to call out unacceptable behaviour, how to empower change and helplines for support.
We asked you how you look out for your friends, course mates and people in your community. This is what you told us you do:
"I cover my friends’ drinks when they put them down"
"I cross the road to overtake a woman so not to be intimidating"
"I walk my friends home"
“I text her to make sure she’s home ok”
"I intervene if I don't like the look of a guy"
"I never leave my female friends alone in a club unless they ask or we know the guy"
"I use the app Life 360 so I know my friends are safe"
"I break their conversation somehow to give the girls a chance to leave"
Call it out. #UWEBristolAllies
