Stand by Her

Being an effective ally to women

Designed by women, delivered to men. 

Stand by Her is a unique program that empowers men to become allies to women. It’s designed by women and delivered to men so that they can help address misogynistic behaviour effectively. 

How it works

We explore men’s behaviour and attitudes that can lead to harmful behaviour and the impact it has on women. We also teach practical skills on how to intervene using our bystander intervention framework and equip them with our resources.

Our Aims


Increase the awareness of sexual harassment and how to disrupt it.

Influence Statistics

Increase reports of misogyny related incidents to the police.


Provide support or information
about available support to victims.

Change the Tone

Send messages that misogyny is not acceptable.
Stand by Her has been piloted in partnership with Nottinghamshire Women’s Aid Ltd (NWAL) in Bassetlaw, North Nottinghamshire as women in rural settings often have less access to support services than women in the cities. This disparity suggests that misogyny is more likely to be unreported and unaddressed.
