Take the issue to your workplace

If you have male colleagues, your workplace can be a great place to raise awareness about violence against women and to encourage other men to get involved.

A few things you could do:

  • Put up posters on noticeboards
  • Email your male colleagues and ask them to pledge their support;
  • Order a box of white ribbons to sell in your reception or tearoom.
  • If you witness someone being sexually harassed at your place of work, don't ignore it.
  • Put on a lunch hour or after work film showing
  • Find out whether your workplace and/or your trade union has a violence against women policy and if they don't, get involved in creating one.
