The #NotOn Campaign
The Guild of Students and the University of Birmingham believe that sexual harassment is not acceptable.Together, we are committed to tackling sexual harassment and believe staff and students have the right to live and study in a safe and supportive environment.
We are committed to creating an inclusive and welcoming community that is free from harassment.
Sexual harassment comes in many forms. It can be physical, emotional, and verbal – anything that makes another person feel uncomfortable or intimidated. Examples of sexual harassment include:
- Unwanted groping
- Uninvited kisses and/or bodily contact
- Wolf whistling
- Inappropriate sexual comments
- Sexually based insults, jokes, songs or taunts
We believe that you should never have to put up with sexual harassment. You should never be made to feel uncomfortable by another individual.
Whether this occurs in bars, on campus, on public transport or online, and by whomever - people you know or complete strangers, we say that this is NOT ON.
It is for this reason that the Guild of Students and the University of Birmingham have launched Not on – a campaign against sexual harassment, and we urge all staff and students to stand together in challenging the behavior around you.
Sexual harassment is not on, not in our community and not on our campus.
