Examples of situations you might witness
I was having a drink with my friends at a bar. I saw the guy put something in the drink of the girl he was with. No one noticed…except me.
A group of us got together at the park. A guy was sitting next to his girlfriend. She started talking about their sex life. He asked her to stop. She laughed and started kissing him to keep him quiet.
I was leaving the photocopy room at work. I saw a supervisor standing behind one of his employees. He was caressing her shoulders and whispering something in her ear. I saw a tear running down her cheek.
I left my apartment and I saw two people a little further down the hallway. He seemed reluctant to enter the apartment. The other person convinced him to go in. It didn’t seem right.
The party was in full swing. They were a lot of people and they were drinking. I saw a guy go into a room where a girl was unconscious. I heard him lock the door.
Don’t stay there watching what’s going on without doing anything.
Be an active witness and do something to prevent sexual violence.
An active witness is someone who observes an unacceptable behaviour toward someone else and intervenes to change the course of events.
