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.
Molly Fitzpatrick, Partnership Hate Crime Coordinator for South Yorkshire Police, visited one of the tram stops to support the campaign. “Nobody should feel afraid to walk these streets. Combating sexual harassment of women and girls in any situation is our shared purpose. This city is working hard to address the issue with campaigns like this.” Thank you for your continued support Molly.
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.
