L’Oreal Paris: Stands Up Against Street Harassment

These are the findings of an international survey on sexual harassment in public spaces, conducted in partnership with Ipsos, researchers at Cornell University and L’Oreal Paris.  The study investigated harassment on a large scale, through online interviews across eight different countries, representing a diversity of societies and cultures.  15,500 people of all ages were interviewed about their experiences of harassment on two levels – as both victims and witnesses.

Today, on International Women’s Day March 8th, L’Oreal Paris launches in five countries (France, Spain, Argentina, Canada, U.S.) and later this year in a further six countries, the program Stand Up aiming to drive awareness of street harassment with a call-to-action on a global scale.

From schools to public transport to festivals to online spaces, Stand Up will grow a global community of 1 million upstanders, trained in the 5D’s: Direct, Delegate, Document, Distract, Delay, the expert-approved bystander intervention training program pioneered by Hollaback!

Bystander intervention is the term for witness action to defuse situations and make public spaces safer. To build this global movement, Stand Up will take its training into the heart of local communities in partnerships with key NGOS working on gender equality in each country.

Driving a cultural shift to tackle street harassment through a dedicated training website and across social media, Stand Up will teach the abovementioned 5 D’s, beginning with Distraction, the simple act of interrupting an incident by asking the time or pretending to be lost.  By opening the public eye to the scale of harassment women, in particular, experience, Stand Up aims to simultaneously discourage harassers, support victims and encourage bystanders to intervene.

Living by its revolutionary I’m worth it tagline, L’Oreal Paris has multiplied brand initiatives to break down the barriers that prevent women from fully believing in and realizing their self-worth.  Leveraging its global reach, today the Stand Up movement takes the brand’s support for women into the public space by tackling the intimidating behaviors that impact girls’ and women’s very sense of freedom to move through the world.

L’Oréal’s global mission is “beauty for all” and their recent walk down the 'golden mile' at Sydney Mardi Gras reaffirms that support and encouragement for everyone to express themselves, on their own terms. As we enter a new decade we know that L’Oréal Australia and their 30 brands play a role in celebrating more gender-expansive faces and voices, and to do this, create a diverse and inclusive workforce that is representative of the consumers its serves and the community. . .
