Initiative against street harrasment

A street artist has started an initiative to tell men not to harras women on street. She made paintings of her female friends, put them on posters and added different messages like "my name is not baby". She wants to directly reach the people that do harras women. The reason she came up with this idea is that she experienced this situation for herself quite often.

The thing I like about this project is is how simple the idea is and that the posters are put on places where the problem actually "happens".

Great highlight of the proximity of messaging, Simon. We thought you and others here might also like to check out this campaign from South Africa to further inspire you for our Ideas phase which opens this week: http://www.openideo.com/challenge/womens-safety/research/shedding-light-on-rape
