Richmond Safer Neighbourhood Board ‘Go Girl’ Project promotes key safety messages for girls and women

One of our key partners, Richmond Safer Neighbourhood Board, has launched a public safety project aimed at women and girls which aims to empower them and to feel more confident when they are out and about in public.

Wendy Kyrle-Pope, Chair of the Board, believes the campaign is more critical than ever before as “so many women report that they freeze when they feel they are in danger. No words will come out of their mouth, their legs stop working. The Go Girl initiative raises awareness of tried and tested ‘age-old’ skills designed to build personal confidence. The “Go Girl” campaign provides a few easy exercises to help by-pass this freeze, so the body takes over automatically, the voice comes, and the legs move again. “

Wendy adds that “Go Girl also looks to provide other key advice designed to empower and protect women and girls and give them confidence and strength.”
