Ninjababes #70: Being a Bystander of Abuse & Violence

Ninjababes #70: Being a Bystander of Abuse & Violence

with Rachel Stewart


What does being a bystander of abuse mean? As a bystander what can you do to help stop a situation of sexual abuse or violence?   How can we normalize bystander culture like: checking in with friends, telling others when something seems wrong, and being respectful in talking to each other about our observations and feelings.  What can we do better at our gyms?  Today Cara Poalillo and Rachel Stewart talk all about learning how to recognize red flags in situations and how to speak up and tell people when something seems "off". We discuss ideas for gyms in making their environments more safe and building a culture of open communication.
