What does the campaign name

"Girl, Talk" mean?
 

It's a play on the commonly-used phrase ‘girl talk’, which describes uninteresting or trivial matters.  In this case, Girl, Talk is used to describe meaningful  conversations that can effect real change, especially when it comes to the important & largely gendered issue  of sexual harassment. So, it’s not ‘girl talk’, it’s Girl, Talk.

It’s time for us to speak up.

Girl, Talk is a digital-first campaign led by four undergraduate students from the Wee Kim Wee School of Communication and Information. The campaign aims to raise awareness about what campus harassment looks like and enable students to respond safely and effectively. By promoting conversations about the topic, we aim to take the first step towards creating safer and more conducive spaces for

living and learning on campus.

Who's behind Girl, Talk?

We're Dan, Yun Rong, Heather and Dawn, & we're sharing

why we created Girl, Talk to help female undergraduates

 start important conversations.

 

Is Girl, Talk

only for females?

Girl, Talk is led by four female undergraduates who ourselves live and study on campus. With the slate of cases over the past years and even some of our own personal experiences, we realised the need to create a community of sisters who could support and encourage each other.

 

While all genders can experience sexual harassment, Sexual Assault Care Centre (SACC)* reports that 79% of survivors of workplace harassment are women. This points to sexual harassment being a gendered issue.

 

However, we empathise with the plight of all sexual harassment survivors. Our online resources are available and accessible to anyone, regardless

of gender.

Why target university harassment experiences? 

University is a time of exploration and experiential learning. We are on the cusp of adulthood, living and learning in the same space as many peers, in highly social environment with complex relationships.

 

We realised that most of us had experienced situations where we felt unsafe or uncomfortable within our time in university and that many other students feel the same way too.

 

Girl, Talk was born from the conviction that that no one should feel unsafe or afraid in what should be a safe space for living and learning.

A huge thank you to our sponsors who are supporting the efforts of Girl, Talk. Starting conversations is a community effort and we are grateful for every person and organisation that has shown us such great support.
