Unhealthy relationships can start early and last a lifetime.
Teens often think some behaviors, like teasing and name calling, are a “normal” part of a relationship.
Despite the real progress made in reducing violence against women, young women continue to face the highest rates of dating violence and sexual assault.
This campaign focuses on reducing violence against women specifically on teens and young women ages 16-24.
The activities address bullying and cyberbullying, sexual harassment and healthy dating for adolescents.
