Guys, it's time we made a pledge against sexual harassment violence and rape.

Guys, it's time we made a  pledge against sexual harassment violence and rape.

Signing this petition is a public pledge of your commitment to this issue, admitting there is a problem, spreading awareness, educating, and working towards change.

Why is this important?

Safety in our society is an issue that affects us all.
Yet almost all instances of sexual harassment, violence and rape are committed by men.
Recent events in Australia have highlighted a huge culture of ignorance surrounding this issue and the only way to break down these barriers is to bring everyone in on the conversation.
Regardless of whether you or anyone you know is a perpetrator, the responsibility is on all of us to speak out about it, call out anyone who acts inappropriately and help build a safer community.

The first step is to make yourself aware that there IS a problem.
The next... join the conversation and educate yourself about the issues and causes.

How does a petition help? It helps us see beyond our own networks. It brings better perspective about the awareness of the issues, and helps others to understand how important this is to the broader community.

By signing, you agree there is a severe, deeply ingrained issue in our culture.
That you are willing to make yourself aware of the causes and to do your best to remedy the situation every day.
A personal pledge to do better, to reflect upon your behaviour and the behaviour of those around you.

SIGN, then please share it around...!!!
There are people around you who don't know how to get involved...
Who are scared to speak out due to lack of understanding, but want to understand and would love to show their support.

Educate yourself...!
