All members of society have the right to study and work without experiencing any form of gender-based violence (GBV), abuse or harassment. Often described as ‘violence against women’, the term gender-based violence refers to violence directed against someone because of their gender and expectations of their role in a society or culture.
The Erase the Grey campaign - launched by Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU) - has key messages which challenge stereotypical attitudes and behaviours and reiterates a zero-tolerance policy towards gender-based violence.(GCU Website). Glasgow Kelvin College is a part of this campaign to raise awareness of this issue with our staff and students.
We will be posting #Erasethegrey posters out to social media over the next few weeks, keep an eye out for them and repost or retweet. Here are a few examples of what we will be posting.
