CAMPAIGN FOR WOMEN'S SAFETY
Following the horrific murder of Sarah Everard in 2021, I was propelled head-first into campaigning for women's safety. After attempting to host a vigil for Sarah, its cancellation and the subsequent national and international outrage that women still need to keep themselves safe from male violence, I felt compelled to work locally to help improve the reality of women's lives. Several media interviews later, I was approached by University of Essex to co-author a paper on how women adapt their behaviour according to how safe they feel and requested to help Chelmsford City Council create a Women's Safety Charter for the city. This consultancy work is on-going and includes my culture-centred training delivered to several businesses and organisations to implement and sustain positive environments and experiences for women.
BUMBLE CYBERFLASHING CAMPAIGN
I was delighted to be asked to help dating app, Bumble, run a campaign to make the act of cyberflashing (or digital flashing) a crime in 2021. This highly successful campaign saw wide-spread national media attention and I was featured in many interviews on and offline as well as my interview on This Morning. We were delighted that cyberflashing was included as an offence in its own right in the amended online safety bill, passed in parliament, in March 2022. However, the fight continues! We are now calling for cyberflashing (the act of sending sexually explicit images via airdrop or social media) is strengthened further by making it a CONSENT based crime. We believe that no consent equals a crime, just as physical flashing is.
