The “Dame la Mano” campaign is about handing out purple bracelets, which are on the one hand a symbol in the fight against sexual harassment of women and on the other hand an actual symbol that marks those people who wear it as those that can be addressed by women who are being (sexually) harassed and will come to their aid in any way. As a wearer of this bracelet, you are signaling that victims of sexual harassment can turn to you at the moment they seek help and receive this support from you. That is why this campaign is also called “Dame la Mano” – “Give me your hand”.
This idea and implementation of the #damelamano campaign started in Argentina and IS NOT OUR OWN CAMPAIGN. We only loved this idea and wanted to implement it in Germany and other European countries as well. We want to support and help with spreading a campaign of another organization and also giving them the credit for it, because we not only want to create solidarity and support between women in our Support Circles, but also make this a reality with how we work as a project.
