Tower Hamlets and Hackney councils are calling on young men to help tackle misogyny in the night-time economy. This includes any activity associated with nightlife, such as pubs, bars or music events.
We are looking for men aged 18-30 to take part in a focus group on 5 June, to help inform a new public awareness campaign to reduce sexual harassment and misogyny.
If you live in Tower Hamlets or Hackney and use the night-time economy, we want to hear your thoughts on the kind of messages that resonate with you, and how we can make our campaign successful.
We can offer you a £25 voucher to thank you for your time and for sharing your thoughts.

More information on the campaign
We have seen a rise in misogynistic behaviours in the night-time economy since the Covid-19 pandemic. We are also aware of an increase in online content targeted at young men, which encourages sexual crimes.
Our campaign will use male role models to challenge misogynistic behaviour, male entitlement and negative views about women that can make public spaces feel unsafe.
Our main messaging for the campaign will be determined by discussions in the focus group, so you can have a real impact in helping to shape our campaign.
Who/what will be required
Participants will be required to attend the focus group in person on 5 June at the Tower Hamlets Professional Development Centre, 229 Bethnal Green Road, London, E2 6AB. The focus group will be run by council staff.
For more information and to sign up, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know if you live in Hackney or Tower Hamlets.
