STAND UP AGAINST STREET HARASSMENT

I joined L'Oréal Group, Women's Aid and the Suzy Lamplugh Trust this week to mark 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Based Violence to support raising awareness and prevent violence against women and girls.


A survey of women revealed that 80% said they had experienced street harassment in public spaces. Furthermore, 86% of those who have witnessed street harassment say there is a lack of training on how to intervene.


L’Oreal has joined with the Suzy Lamplugh Trust to grow a community of upstanders, trained in the ‘five Ds’ – the expert-approved intervention programme :


1) Distract the perpetrator 2) Delegate by asking for help 3) Document the harassment 4) Direct by speaking up 5) Delay by comforting


If you want to participate in the introductory 10 minute training session for bystanders please click on the link Suzy Lamplugh Trust Events to find the next available training slots.

This training will help you recognise the signs of street harassment and provide a basic toolkit for safe intervention.
