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.
Sheffield Central Labour MP Paul Blomfield visited one of the poster sites to support the campaign. “I’m backing the Know the Line campaign to stop sexual harassment. 85% of women have been harassed in public places. Men and boys responsible have got to stop. Women and girls should be safe on our streets”. Thank you for your continued support Paul.
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.
