One out of five women will be sexually assaulted during her college years. The University of New Hampshire has a novel approach to prevention: bringing in bystanders, encouraging them to speak up and intervene before an assault.

Professor Sharyn Potter is one of the Bringing In The Bystander project leaders at UNH. The group has developed a variety of posters and other promotional items for their "Know Your Power" social marketing campaign. You can see the posters here.
