Lesson objectives

  1. To recognise various forms of violence against women
  2. To promote violence prevention
  3. To contribute to creating a respectful and safe society for all women

Male violence against women and girls starts with words. The advert depicts a young woman walking home when she encounters a group of men on the street. While waiting for a taxi, the woman seems visibly uncomfortable as one of the men approaches her, making inappropriate comments about her appearance and attempting to engage her in conversation. In the background, his friends observe the situation until one of them intervenes, calling out the inappropriate behaviour.
