The "so what can we actually do" thread...(548 Posts)
Following on from the thread about changing the law on rape to grant anonimity to the accused, a few people have started to think about what we can do to get involved, to actually try and change stuff.
So I guess this thread is for suggestions, ideas, and for people to link up to actually try to change things.
So far we have someone possibly standing for pariament!
So come on everyone.
What's the plan....
Righty ho Prolesworth, should i direct people over here? and where best to post?
What about just Stop Rape? those websites are free too.
So it could be
"I believe you"
"On average 1 in 3 women and girls will be raped in her lifetime. www.stoprape.co.uk"
Maybe not .org as may get mixed up with this: www.stoprapenow.org/ although that does look like a good site. Only focussing on ending rape in warzones though.
It's scarily simple, this idea. People might mock at trying to "stop rape" - but it's what everyone (except rapists) should be aiming for, right? Plus no-one thinks that "Stop child abuse" campaigns are silly.
sorry Lenin was just quick example of potential stat(did i mention am trying not to get this mixed up with job I am applying for? ), easy enough to get hold of exact figures though.
This is sounding good.
Anyone know anything about getting hold of domain name?
So ideas for content.
- link to petition on the anonymity issue
- rape myths debunked - they have some on other websites but we could do a thread to generate out own
- links to helpful websites, possibly via an emergency button on homepage e.g. rape crisis, women's aid.
- need a mission statement
- collection of photos for the "I Believe You" campaign. Ideally featuring people of all ages/sexes/races. How should we collect these?
Not trying to take over btw, just brainstorming really.
That's great Lenin - do you know how much hosting usually costs?
I am happy to do a lot of the copywriting/drafting for website as I'm used to that, if people want me to. Would post here for comments/amends.
we could have one of those automatic linky things through from ibelieveyou.co.uk? how do they happen? (displays gaping maw of ignorance) Think "I Believe You" is great too Proles, but think it's more of a slogan than a group name, IYSWIM? Like, if someone interviewed you and said "Proles from I Believe You said ___", slightly odd. I just thought "Proles from Stop Rape" sounded better. It could work though?
