Engaging Ontarians in a dialogue about sexual violence.

Your friend seems anxious around her interpreter.

Do you check in with her?

Why Draw the Line

Deaf women and women with disabilities are 4x more likely to experience sexual assault.

When to Draw the Line

Being concerned about someone's well being is not crossing the line; it's being a good friend. If you're worried, ask.

How to Draw the Line

There's always more than one option for a bystander. Take a stand safely and do something you feel comfortable with. You could:

  • Check in with your friend: "Are you okay?"
  • Believe her. Validate her feelings.
  • Find support. Offer community resources and services.
