Following the rise in misogyny online and amongst young people, this week's VoteTopic took a closer look at some examples of misogynistic behaviour in action and the potential barriers to calling out friends or peers in these situations.
"It can be very difficult to set boundaries sometimes as people might get offended. It takes time to make others learn what you are comfortable with."
"If your friends are being misogynistic people feel that they will hurt their
friendships if they say about it so they don’t however if they are doing
that are they really your friends?”
"It can be difficult to call out misogynistic behavior as it can be very uncomfortable and at times dangerous - however, there should be more activism and more calling out of this behavior. It needs to be addressed early on, in schools and as children. Women's Rights are Human Rights!"
Bethan Kelly, National Programme Development Manager for Child Sexual Abuse and Exploitation from Barnardos and Jeremy Todd, Chief Executive of Family Lives provided a response to what the children said.
