Throughout the month of August Know the Line hosted a poster campaign at tram stops in Sheffield to challenge people to know where the line is.
Marilyn Gregory is the Chair of VIDA Sheffield, an independent voluntary sector organisation that delivers specialist domestic and sexual abuse services and training, aiming to end domestic abuse and violence against women and girls. VIDA are active members of the collaboration behind the Know the Line campaign. Marilyn explained “I support the Know the Line campaign because through our work we see the real and direct impact of stalking upon women”. Thank you for your continued support Marilyn.
Thanks to funding from the Lush Charity Post, Know the Line had posters at tram stops at: the University of Sheffield, Netherthorpe Road, Middlewood Road, Malin Bridge, Meadowhall and Cricket Inn Road.
The posters featured paired phrases of acceptable/unacceptable behaviours and aimed to challenge the sexual harassment of women and girls in our streets and public places and to encourage bystander intervention. The campaign hoped for the posters to spark conversations about knowing the line between acceptable respectful interactions, and unacceptable, intrusive and offensive behaviours.
