The Not On Campaign
TW: talks about sexual harassment and states examples of this, including bullying and exploitation.
Together, the Guild of Students and the University of Birmingham are committed to creating an inclusive and welcoming community that is free from sexual harassment, where bodily autonomy is respected, and where people feel secure no matter where they are.
Sexual harassment is anything that makes another person feel uncomfortable or intimidated. It can be physical, emotional, and verbal and it can happen in the online world and in-person. Examples can include, but are not limited to:
You should never have to put up with sexual harassment, or be made to feel uncomfortable by another individual.
Whether this occurs in bars, at home, on campus, on public transport, online, by people you know or by complete strangers - we say that this is Not On.
We also believe it is vital to set the tone and place firm boundaries around what behaviours will not be tolerated, as well as create a culture where everyone feels equipped to challenge or call out any unacceptable behaviours they might witness in day-to-day life. This is why we have the Not On campaign.
