Sexual harassment happens everywhere. Not just on the sidewalk or in the staff room, but also at sports bars, in the stands—maybe right next to you.
But we know that sports fans are not fans of sexual harassment. Or violence and discrimination against women in any form.
When someone talks down to or about a woman, BE THAT GUY and speak up. Be the one who says, “Not cool.” Because you know that even random offhand comments aren’t cool and that letting them go fuels other kinds of disrespect and discrimination—even harassment and assault. Because you know that if everyone feels safe, respected, and able to be their best selves, everyone wins. And because you know what? When you step up, your team will have your back.
