Laurie and Rachel, Co-Founders of Taking Up Space said, ‘It has been brilliant working with the girls and staff at the Baytree Centre. The girls in the group are smart, and funny and so switched on about politics and the issues they face in their day to day lives. We have been working together to make resources about street and sexual harassment- topics that the girls picked. Their decisions about the content to cover and about how to present the information so it’s both sensitive and empowering for their peers have led to a really powerful design. While the project has been hugely enjoyable, the experiences the girls have shared, especially around the volume of street harassment they and their friends face, have reinforced why we’re doing the project and why it’s vital that women and girls are well informed about their rights and have access to spaces like Baytree.’
