    Gender Stereotypes and Street Harassment: How to Use Peer Pressure for Positive Change

    Gender Stereotypes and Street Harassment: How to Use Peer Pressure for Positive Change

    Our latest installment of 'Sex, Likes and Social Media' podcast explores how young people can use activism to call out street harassment and channel peer pressure into moral rebellion, affecting real change. Jessica Hawley, The RAP Project's Head of Training & Director of Primary Development, and Evie Chiles, RAP blogger and Intern, speak to two activists who are dedicated to end Street Harassment: Maya Tutton, co-founder of 'Our Streets Now' and Dr Dan Guiness, Managing Director of 'Beyond Equality'. Maya and her sister Gemma channelled an initial conversation on how uncomfortable it is to field sexist comments when walking home at night into a nationwide movement against street harassment. Meanwhile, Dan and his team deliver workshops to men and boys about gender equality, inclusive communities, and healthier relationships. We then speak to the brilliant Amherst College academic and author Dr. Catherine Anderson, whose latest book is called ""Why We Act: Turning Bystanders into Moral Rebels," which examines how people can harness moral rebellion to implement changes in behaviour. RAP believes young people today are the foot soldiers who can fundamentally reduce peer on peer sexual assault and harassment, and gender stereotypes. Listen to see how!

Are they doing enough to end gender-based violence and harassment? Are their actions making their campus’ safer? Deana Puccio, Co-Founder of The RAP Project, speaks to three university students, who openly discuss their experiences and offer some practical, positive strategies to create real change.

Cathy offers brilliant advice on how students can use the start of the school year to practice a forward thinking approach, adapt and enjoy personal and academic growth.

Introduction

I’m thrilled I’ve found this podcast. I follow the rap project on Instagram but listening to this podcast is much more informative. As a mother listening, I find I’m getting hints and better ways to talk to my children about sex, pornography & social media. I look forward to hearing more from you.
The work you are doing is much needed. Again, I’m grateful I found this podcast. Keep doing what you’re doing, our children need you. #knowledgeispower
