THE SPEAKUP-MOVEMENT: BREAKING THE SILENCE
When the affected can’t talk about their experiences, we need to be even louder for them. This is the only way to change something. When we don’t look away any longer. When everyone raises their voice. To strengthen women* and not the offenders. Be part of the SPEAKUP-movement. Speak up about the true extent of sexual violence in Germany. Let’s make a change – together! Share and spread the SPEAKUP-movement!
ONE OUT OF EVERY
is affected by sexual violence in Germany¹
experienced sexual violence¹
remains silent about her experience¹
WOMEN* SHARE THEIR EXPERIENCES
If a woman* confides in you: Never blame her. The offenders are always the ones to blame. Side with her. Believe her. Respect her decisions and boundaries. Don’t rush anything. Offer her support. Get help from us or other support services.
WHAT WE DO
We are loud for those who don’t want to or can’t talk about their experiences. We give the affected a voice and break the silence. Here you can find support services/helplines in your area.
SPEAKUP AS A SUSTAINABLE FASHION STATEMENT
