- "The first ever London-wide campaign to end sexual harrassment on nights out" launches this weekend, with backing by clubs like fabric.
Hollaback London is launching an anti-sexual harassment campaign called Good Night Out this weekend.
Touted as "the first ever London-wide campaign to end sexual harassment on nights out," it's been endorsed by a number of top London clubs, with fabric, Dance Tunnel, Village Underground and Ministry Of Sound amongst the signatories. The participating clubs have all pledged to stand behind any patrons subjected to harassing behavior. As part of the action, posters will be hung in London clubs containing the message: "If something or someone makes you feel uncomfortable, no matter how minor it seems, you can report it to any member of our staff and they will work with you to make sure it doesn't have to ruin your night."
"Groping, bum-slapping, and sexually aggressive behaviour are all too common aspects of nights out in London," says Julia Gray, co-director of Hollaback London. "We started this campaign because so many women and LGTBQ people submit stories of harassment and even assault in clubs and pubs to our website; and these experiences are now so commonplace that they’re actually putting people off going out altogether."
You can learn more about the campaign via Good Night Out's website.
