Watch the Campaign

When you see disrespect towards women

Do something

What will you do?

it's not ok

Actions can speak louder than words.

To show how you feel:

  • Roll your eyes 

  • Shake your head

  • Don’t laugh along 

  • Sit between the woman and the disrespectful person 

Do something because doing nothing does harm.

women

Support women and anyone else doing something:

  • Ask if she’s ok

  • ​Back up others: ‘What they said'

  • Acknowledge what's happened: ‘I’m sorry they said that’

Do something because doing nothing does harm.

Speak up
to stop disrespect

Speak up about disrespectful behaviour:

  • Respond to a sexist joke with ‘I don’t get it?’

  • Purposely change the topic: ‘Ooo-kaaay, let’s move on?’ 

  • Gently tease them: ‘Are you still in the 1950s?!’ 

  • Ask them to stop: ‘Mate, can you not? C’mon’
