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