The CrowdGuard workshop programme raises awareness about sexual and gender based violence, and spreads knowledge about self-assertion and safe intervention. Education is a necessary step to change the bystander paradigm, but cannot remove all the barriers.
The CrowdGuard app addresses some of the remaining bystander barriers. It empowers you to help people in your immediate geographical proximity. If you are being assaulted you can raise the alarm and receive help from the trusted CrowdGuard helper community.

To call woman the weaker sex is a libel; it is man's injustice to woman. If by strength is meant brute strength, then, indeed, is woman less brute than man. If by strength is meant moral power, then woman is immeasurably man's superior. Has she not greater intuition, is she not more self-sacrificing, has she not greater powers of endurance, has she not greater courage? Without her, man could not be. If nonviolence is the law of our being, the future is with woman. Who can make a more effective appeal to the heart than woman?
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.
