Tackling female harassment in clubs – ‘Change The Lineup’

‘Change The Lineup’ set up in the wake of the murder of Sarah Everard earlier this year, aiming to raise awareness of female harassment in clubland.

Sexual harassment in clubs has come into the spotlight more and more in recent times, and a new poster campaign is now being implemented to raise awareness around the issue. 

Change The Lineup is a new project in circulation from Tom Snell and Dylan Hartigan, set up in the wake of the murder of Sarah Everard earlier this year. The young female was brutally attacked in Clapham, South London. The tragic news led to discussions around violence towards women, with harassment in clubs a major part of these talks. 

Speaking to Campaign, Snell said: “We felt strongly about a need for men to change their behaviour. Nightclubs, in particular, proved to be commonplace for sexual harassment to occur, so we devised the idea of ‘Change The Lineup’, a poster campaign designed to raise awareness of the usual ‘lineup’ that women experience on nights out and demand a change in the way males act.” 

“The posters’ aesthetic takes inspiration from the colourful design of classic ’90s rave flyers, with the pair placing a number of the posters around popular nightlife hubs in London, such as Shoreditch and Farringdon, in time to coincide with the reopening of nightclubs. Listing the forms of harassment women face in clubs, the posters state: “For four in five women, this night out is a reality. Let’s change the lineup.” 

Change The Line-Up poster campaign

Snell and Hartigan hope that clubbing venues will participate in the project and display the poster campaign designed specifically for the nightlife industry. Discussions with the likes of Fabric and Ministry Of Sound are already underway, and join the likes of Durex with a similar campaign around female safety. 

Talks are already underway at some of the UK’s major clubbing hotspots. We hope that all venues will participate in this project and help to raise awareness around this important issue.
