Is everything ok?

It should be safe to go out on the town. We have to stick together to prevent sexual abuse before it happens. Keep watch and step in if we see someone not respecting boundaries.

What can we do?

  • Keep an eye out. If someone is harassing another person or overstepping boundaries, pay attention.
  • Trust your gut feeling. If you're feeling like something's wrong, you're probably right. Trust your instinct. If you won't help them, who will?
  • Step in. Simply asking "is everything ok?" could prevent a sexual assault.
  • Get help. If you think you need assistance, reach out to a bartender, taxi driver, a friend, a doorman, or a bus driver. You can also always call 112.

Sexual abuse

Sexual abuse is when someone touches you inappropriately or sexually, or forces you to perform a sexual act against your will. Sexual harassment with words or action is also abuse.


Nobody has the right to force another person to do something sexual against their will. Having sex with another person without consent is rape.

Sexual harassment

Sexual harassment is when someone oversteps sexual boundaries.

Don't become abusive

Respecting other people's boundaries is a basic element in any conversation. Hesitation is not the same thing as consent. Have you possibly crossed the boundaries?


Spiking is when someone gives another person medicine, alcohol or drugs without her consent or knowledge.
