Stories from the #metoo movement (English subtitles)
Deaf and hard of hearing women and non-binary persons have joined together under the hashtag #turnadeafear. The group wants to break the culture of silence regarding sexual harassment in the deaf community and in society at large. This film from the Swedish Gender Equality Agency shows testimonies from women and non-binary individuals who are deaf, hard of hearing or deaf and blind.
#onnocondition is a hashtag used by women with a disability. The group highlights that the support they are entitled to is often conditional, which means an increased risk of sexual harassment and violence.
Behind the hashtag #notyourwhore are individuals who have experienced prostitution and sexual exploitation.
The women behind # notthegoodolddays explain that guilt and shame is a heavy load to carry and that violence does not necessarily stop because you get older.
This hashtag stands for girls, women and transgender persons with experience of abuse/and or drug addition, crime and prostitution. The right to support and protection from sexual harassment, assault and violence must apply to everyone, regardless of their situation in life.
