Stand up against street harassment – the 5D method

For Women’s Rights Day, TheMerode is talking about women’s safety in public spaces. Join us and learn the 5D, a safe and efficient method to react and intervene.

Distract, Delegate, Document, Dialogue and Direct. Five words that can make a difference when it comes to street harassment. On Women’s Rights Day, TheMerode is bringing women’s safety to the fore with an interactive workshop.

In the street, in the subway, at the office: whether we are a woman or a man, we've all witnessed inappropriate behavior and found ourselves unprepared to intervene. 

Come and learn how to react when you witness sexist or sexual harassment. TPAMP founder Béa Ercolini and trainer Jade Bourion will teach you the 5 Ds. From D for "Distract" to D for "Lead", an effective method for ensuring that women's right to live their lives in peace is respected.

Join us and become an actor for women’s safety.
