What people say about us

"I learned that as a bystander, you can also help in ways you don't immediately think of. Confronting people is hard sometimes, because that might also put yourself in an unsafe situation. So distracting someone for a moment can be enough." - Sophie de Waal (23)

"'Everyone should hear this at least once. It really does give a different perspective on street harassment and what you can do. I'm going to share this with my kids at home!" - Participant
