Actions To Safely Intervene Against Street Harassment

Stand Up Against Street Harassment trainings are based on Right To Be’s 5Ds methodology – an expert-approved set of tools to help onlookers safely intervene when witnessing street harassment. The 5D’s include Distract, Delegate, Document, Direct and Delay.

 

  • DISTRACT: Pretend to be friends, ask for the time, cause a distraction.
  • DELEGATE: Find someone in a position of authority or another bystander and ask them to intervene.
  • DOCUMENT: Either film or write down what is happening, where you are and the date and time. Give this to the person being harassed.
  • DELAY: Check in with the person being harassed. Acknowledge that what happened was not ok. It is definitely not their fault.
  • DIRECT: Speak up and call the harasser out. Only use Direct as a last resort to prevent violence. Your safety and the safety of the person being harassed comes first. The 5Ds methodology by Right To Be are 5 actions to safely intervene when witnessing or experiencing street harassment. 97% of Stand Up trainees say it helped them to intervene effectively2
