Statement from Julie and Elaine, co-founders of Freedom Personal Safety 16 March 2021:
The events of the past week have shocked and appalled us, and has brought to the fore something that we have known for a long time – women’s safety isn’t just a women’s issue. As you know women’s safety is at the heart of our work, but in order to bring about change, it is essential to work with men and boys too, exploring issues such as sexual harassment, the impact of gender inequality and violence against women and girls.
We have created and developed programmes with young people on peer education projects exploring healthy relationships and the impact of domestic abuse. In recent years our programmes on online safety, impact of pornography, sexual harassment and rape culture have given us the opportunity to work with young men and women to react against the societal norms of gender bias and stereotyping created by adults, and giving them a safe space to discuss, challenge and find their voice to speak out against gender-based abuse and violence.
Our work is deeply personal and is driven by the need to change the status quo. We will continue to strive for a safer and more equal future for women and girls.
Do get in touch if we can work with you to acheive this goal.
