Eye-catching illustrations of people cyberflashing will feature in adverts online and on billboards across the country with the message ‘It’s illegal to flash someone irl so why not online?’ However, the genitals themselves will be censored by a QR code, accompanied by the hashtag #STOPCYBERFLASHING.
People will be encouraged to scan the QR code with their phones – they’ll then be taken to Brook’s campaign landing page to learn more about cyberflashing, and directed to a platform allowing them to instantly tweet their MP to demand their support in banning cyberflashing.
Unsolicited nudes have been invading our inboxes for long enough. Cyberflashing is not just intimidating, it’s sexual harassment which can cause untold harm and emotional distress to the victim. Yet it happens every single day - according to a 2018 YouGov poll, a shocking four in ten young women said they had been sent a photograph of a penis without having asked for one, with 46% of these women saying they were under 18 when it first happened, and 26% of 18-24 year old men have reported receiving unsolicited nudes.
