don't be a dick

Our latest campaign, don't be dick, calls on policy makers and practitioners to take cyberflashing seriously.

Cyberflashing is when someone sends an intimate image of themselves to someone else without that person's consent. It can be done through messages, DMs, PMs, airdrop and through email.

Many women and girls tell us about their experiences and we know what an impact it can have on people's self esteem, relationships, engagement in education and sexual autonomy.

Cyber flashing is a crime, but more than that- it's also a form of gender based violence and it needs to stop.

 Tell us about your experiences and what you think needs to change in the box--->

Share our poster, get involved in our campaign and tell perpetrators- don't be a dick. 

share your story

We hear all the time from folk about their experiences of cyber flashing, and we want to gather this together to make change.

You don't have to share your real name,stories shared may be made public (without your details)
