Women experience sexual harassment on a daily basis. The recent social media campaign #MeToo highlighted it to be a global issue affecting all women and permeating all social spaces, including our streets and institutions.
And in Bristol it is also an issue, but we are making big changes to this through the Zero Tolerance initiative run by Bristol Women’s Voice. But this project is now at imminent risk of closure due to funding cuts.
We understand that not all of our supporters can afford to give large donations so anything that you can give is gratefully received.
£10 could provide toolkits for people who experience or witness street harassment. This helps them to understand how to report it, and intervene safely.
£25 can enable our staff to work with an employer to develop an action plan to prevent harassment and abuse in the workplace. Partners are asked to take action in at least one of the following areas:
£55 could facilitate outreach to venues in the city to address sexual assault and harassment in the night time economy.
£95 can provide a high quality training workshop for a workplace in Bristol. Staff are taught how to identify harassment and abuse, how to prevent it and how to manage it.
