Description

Hollaback London Skill Share Workshop: Storying Resistance

Street harassment is a serious issue. Currently 65% of all women have experienced it, with the figure rising to 85% for 18-24 year olds, only 11% of women said anyone had intervened when they were harassed. Importantly these figures are most probably far higher, especially when we take into account harassment perpetrated against trans women and non-binary people.

This interactive workshop will focus on:

- exploring what harassment looks like to us as women and non-binary people,

- sharing stories of our own experiences of these intrusions

- discussing our responses to these harassment and intrusions

- examining what bystander intervention can look like and how such intervention can help to de-root misogyny

-Hollaback will also be sharing how you can get involved with campaigning, using digital tools, social media and storytelling to make a difference.

This is an inclusive workshop.

Hollaback London are a London-based collective that is part of the global movement to end male intrusions and street harassment. They work to ignite public conversations and develop innovative strategies to eradicate street harassment, and at the heart of this work is story sharing.

Their work has been featured on the BBC 4 Radio documentary “My name is not Hey Baby.” They have provided workshops and training for Queen Mary University, Bristol University, Cambridge University, London School of Economics, Kings College London, Southwark Council, The Labour Party, Shepherd's Bush Housing Group and many many more. Hollaback London! have also provided specialist training workshops for countless venues, pubs, bars and clubs including fabric, Uber, The Shard, Ministry of Sound and Village Underground in London. They work in partnership with organisations like Drinkaware and sit on the advisory board for Transport for London and British Transport Police’s Project Guardian initiative to end sexual offences on public transport.

This event is in conjunction with Nasty Women UK with all proceeds going to End Violence Against Women.
