What do all stories of sexual harassment have in common, and what can they teach us?
Over the past year and a half, we have broke down and analysed hundreds of stories of sexual harassment, and came to a conclusion: women*’s collective history of violence and trauma can be turned into tools to navigate this patriarchal world.
“It’s Not That Grey” deconstructs the so-called “grey zone” of sexual harassment by giving concrete tools to identify, bust myths around it and fight harassment. It’s a practical guide navigating the twilight of harassment.
We live in a world where the vast majority of women* will be the target of harassment, sexual assault or rape at some point in their lives. With our “Red Flag System“, we help potential targets and bystanders of harassment to identify early instances of sexual harassment, and change society for the better.
This guide is a hands-on training, it is challenging the status-quo and it wants to change the world.
