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.
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!
