im only 17 and ive already had like 3 mid-life crises
This summer, I have been taking part in a social action / volunteering scheme funded by the government called NCS (National Citizenship Service). For our project, our group is starting a campaign to make young people (particularly women) feel safer in the community and to help stop rape culture and the objectification of women. To do this, we are planning on having a flash mob, a free self defence class for those who wish to learn to protect themselves, and a picture campaign.
Want to know more? Here is our introductory post.
So why do I need your help?
Well, in two ways -
- Firstly, we need photos for our photo campaign. There are two options; firstly, a photo of you holding a message/statement about how you feel or what you want to be able to feel related to this subject, and secondly, a photo of you holding your hand out in a ‘stop’ gesture. Neither of these require you to show your face - in fact, the aim is to hide your face. You can see examples of these photos here (bear in mind the blog is still in progress) and submit them here. We would love to have both photos from you, but of course just one is fine.
- Secondly, please take our short survey. It’s only 10 short, mostly multiple choice questions, and will take less than five minutes but will provide us with research we can use in our campaign.
You have no idea how grateful I would be if you could do even one of the above things to help us. I would also really, really appreciate your help to spread the word, either by reblogging this post or the introductory one I linked earlier.
