Campaign

The Municipal Institute of Women presents its campaign against street sexual harassment "Social distancing is a way to prevent street harassment", whose objective is to raise awareness about this topic.

According to the most recent research on street harassment prepared by the Municipal Institute of Women, 90% of the women surveyed consider that catcalling,  unwanted comments, gestures, and actions forced on a stranger in a public place without their consent are manifestations of street harassment and disagree with those practices.

Great leaps in our culture sometimes take small steps. Respecting the boundaries of personal space is also social distancing. Let’s build a new normality where women are safer on our streets.

PRELIMINARY RESULTS OF THE INVESTIGATION

About street harassment

"According to 7 out of 10 women, street sexual harassment makes them feel fear, anger and helplessness."

"6 out of 10 women report having been touched by strangers without consent while they were on public space."

"Almost 70% of women have had to change: clothing, routes, schedules and expenses to feel safer while walking down the streets."

Strategy

Dissemination in mass media and social networks, intervention in public spaces in the points of greatest incidence, as well as in public transport.

Intervention in public space

Graphic interventions at the points with the highest incidence of harassment.

Dissemination materials

Our dissemination materials will reinforce the measures of the national campaign of healthy distance.

Intervention in social media

We broadcast spots on television, radio and graphic and audiovisual materials for social networks with the messages of our campaign

Public transport intervention

We make interventions within public transport units, including the Ecobus.

LET´S STOP STREET HARASSMENT
