It is that Deep

sexual harassment campaign

ages 14-21

A co-creating campaign by young women for young people to raise awareness and encourage the call out – of modern sexual harassment. The campaign aims to contribute to the systematic change that the mobilisation of the #MeTOO and TimesUp movement has engendered around the world, with more girls and women feeling empowered to speak up and call out inappropriate behaviour, thereby raising awareness of the signs of sexual harassment and violence.

about

For young girls growing up in urban environments it can be hard to recognise and articulate harassment when it happens, as it’s often ‘normalised’ amongst peer groups, with inappropriate comments, touching and ‘ownership’ assumed to be the norm. In this context, it’s important that young people develop an understanding of what sexual harassment looks like, as well as having the confidence to call out unwanted on and offline sexual behaviours and challenge it when it happens.

The It Is That Deep Campaign equips young women with the tools to understand different forms of sexual harassment and safeguard each other, supporting girls in knowing when and how to set boundaries, in order to prevent girls from becoming victims, giving them the power to influence change systematically. 

BelEve UK has created a safe space for girls and young women to access practical resources and training, explore ideologies and exercise their voice, thereby changing the narrative for many young women in London.

The Aim

We also aim to equip young women with the tools to safeguard each other alongside supporting them in knowing when and how to set boundaries. We want girls to know that it’s not OK for someone to touch your bum or breast, unless you want them to. And if you call it out, you are not being “frigid” you are being powerful.

Racism In Sports

Racism is a topic people like to avoid because it is big. It can’t be whittled down to one action or incident and therefore, it creates awkward silences.The elephant in the room.It raises questions that need to be answered. It brings a topic that is usually swept under the rug above board and forces people to engage with the reality of it.
