#ImNotOkWithThat: Step Up for Gender Equality

Have you ever been told a sexist joke? Have you overheard colleagues speaking disrespectfully about women? Or witnessed someone being harassed on the street and thought ‘I’m not ok with that’? Were you not sure what to do? Or if you should step in?

We all have a role to play in preventing violence against women and promoting respect and equality where we live, work, and socialise. 

Preventing violence against women is everyone’s business. Evidence tells us that violence against women is driven by gender inequality.

This is why the City of Adelaide is proud to launch ‘#ImNotOKWithThat: Step Up For Gender Equality’.

This campaign asks people to ‘Step Up For Gender Equality’, with the aim of promoting positive and respectful behaviour and increasing women’s safety in our Adelaide community.

This project aims to deliver on Outcomes 1 and 2 of the City of Adelaide’s Safer City Policy; ‘Safe streets, spaces and places’ and ‘Strong and welcoming communities’.

The #ImNotOkWithThat campaign will run from May to December 2021 and involve a number of activities that engage the Adelaide and North Adelaide community in promoting women’s safety and preventing gender-based violence.
