The It Stops Now campaign has launched in Scotland, with the University of Glasgow leading a week of activity to raise awareness of and combat sexual violence and harassment.
Students installed the campaign mural in the college library, with the college also releasing the campaign video to encourage students to believe and support survivors, speak up against toxic behaviours, and always check consent.

Other events taking place during the week include a "Let's Talk about Sexual Violence" workshop on 23 January, the release of a training video on gender-based violence, and the release of a statement against gender-based violence by the college.
The campaign is being run in conjunction with the university, Ending Sexual Violence and Harassment in Third-Level Education (ESHTE) project partner Rape Crisis Scotland, and Glasgow University Student Representative's Council.
