Giving a Voice to Women of Gender-based Attacks

Real stories of sexual harassment combined with the black humor of rampaging penises makes for a stand-out spot promoting HandsAway, a mobile app designed “to fight against the sexual aggressions undergone by women daily.”

The film was created by TBWA\Paris with live action production and VFX handled by the agency’s production arm TBWA\Else.

From the release: “Gender-based street harassment, sexually explicit content, sexist remarks, stalking, flashing and assault have become pretty familiar in our streets.
“HandsAway’s mission is to allow women to give testimony about their daily life and to collect this data in order to concern public opinion. The app also allows women to speak and build solidarity with a network called Street Angels.

“Thanks to a tracking system, the app allows users to alert the Street Angels in case of danger by describing the sexist aggression – no matter if you are the victim or the witness. The app allows you to alert, to testify and also to comfort victims.

“By using Handsaway, you can contribute to the largest community committed against sexist attacks.”
