Would you, could you – step in to stop harassment?

80% of women in the UK report experiencing harassment in public places (Suzy Lamplugh Trust)

If we want to end violence against women and girls, we have to stop behaviours that underlie it –  harassment is one of those behaviours.

But is that easier said than done?

As part of our 16 Days of Activism to end Gender Based Violence, lots of us have been taking part in a free, one hour, on-line training session provided by the Suzy Lamplugh Trust. We’ve found out how to intervene to stop harassment without putting ourselves at risk or escalating the situation.


 We’ve learned how we could step in to help a woman being harassed on public transport



And what we could do to stop a lone woman being harassed in a bar

We’ve learned that any one of us, woman or man can step in to stop harassment when we see it happening. And it’s much easier than we thought!



If you have an hour to spare, that’s all you need to find out how you could safely intervene to stop harassment in public places. We promise you it’s worth it!
