Women take a stand against rape culture with #ThisDoesntMeanYes

The message is simple: "A short skirt is not a yes. A red lip is not a yes."

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month, and a campaign called #ThisDoesntMeanYes is taking off in the UK.

Activist group Rape Crisis London helped launch the campaign to share the message that no matter what you’re wearing, it should never be construed as an invitation for sexual assault.

This project is in the same vein as Red My Lips, another Sexual Assault Awareness Month campaign which invited women to sport bold red lips all month. Red My Lips delivered a similarly simple yet powerful message: that wearing sexy lipstick is not any sort of invitation for unwanted conversation or contact.
