Background to the Bystander Intervention:
What is the Intervention Initiative and what is it for?

The extent of sexual harassment, sexual coercion, rape and domestic abuse in student populations across England has been revealed in evidence from crime surveys, student surveys and professionals working with students. The evidence has produced an imperative for universities to act. This resource is a response to that imperative.

Welsh Women’s Aid are looking for students to take part in a pilot programme that aims to show students how to intervene to stop violence and abuse. The programme is called “The Bystander Intervention” and it has already been used in campuses across the USA.

The Bystander Intervention will help male and female students recognise sexual harassment and abuse, and give them the skills and confidence to respond appropriately. It also looks at changing cultural norms that condone sexism and harassment.

Why do we need it?

  • One in three female students at UK universities will experience sexual assault or abuse while studying.

  • One in eight men experience unwanted sexual advances at university (The Telegraph, 2015)

The Desis Choice project and Aberystwyth University are proud to be working with Welsh Women's Aid on the important pilot for this initiative.
