Learn about Making A Difference


This page highlights how we can all help to prevent GBV in our personal as well as our academic lives.

5 Key Ways to Make A Difference:

  1. Understand consent
  2. Challenge sexist or objectifying behaviour around you
  3. Educate yourself and others on the myths and realities of GBV
  4. Do not victim-blame survivors
  5. Support organisations working to end sexual violence
