Sheffield Hallam bystander training

Maureen and Christine from the Know the Line campaign attended a training event on 26 February 2018 on bystander intervention.

The session explored what sexual harassment is, how frequently it occurred, and how severe it is. Of interest was looking into how crowds work and the herd instinct to not intervene.

“Bystander intervention is a very powerful way to combat street sexual harassment. Be prepared and make sure you’re safe.”

The Don’t Stand By project run by Sheffield Hallam University focuses on positive intervention strategies which can be deployed to prevent different kinds of harassment and bullying.
