CampusMeToo is a student-led, Pan-African movement to end sexual harassment from staff on campus. On the 19th of November 2019, CampusMeToo was launched inspired by the success of the #MeToo and #SexForGrades for grades movement to empower students to break the silence on sexual harassment through creative student-led activism.The CampusMeToo movement ambassadors aim to create awareness on ending sexual harassment from staff on campus. To achieve this, the students came up with 5 key demands:

  1. Facilitate all newly enrolled students to watch an educational resource on sexual harassment, and make sexual harassment a topic in every induction for newly enrolled students
  2. Conduct a yearly training for all staff on sexual harassment. At the end of the training, all staff must sign a standardized code of conduct and ethics
  3. Appoint a Gender Officer with the obligation to: facilitate training and outreach on sexual harassment; provide resources and support to victims of sexual harassment; and develop, disseminate, implement, and review relevant policies on sexual harassment
  4. Establish an investigative committee that students can approach when they have received unfair or missing marks due to instances of sexual harassment from university lecturers or staff
  5. Incorporate Demands 1 – 4 into its sexual harassment policy, publish an annual report detailing the progress on achieving the objectives, and implement a sexual harassment assessment survey every two years to monitor the issue.
