It is 8:22 am this Saturday, November 21, and the mobilization has already started.
On a WhatsApp group of nearly 200 participants, Caroline De Haas, co-founder of #NousToutes, posts a message: “Hello everyone!
This is the only message that will be posted here today.
We are November 21.
The day of mobilization against gender-based and sexual violence begins!
Our objective ?
Make as much noise as possible, all day long on social networks, to sensitize as many people as possible against violence ”.

On Instagram, Twitter or Facebook, small purple squares have started to bloom.
It is still a long way from being a tidal wave at this time, but the philosopher Camille Froidevaux-Metterie, or the creator of the Stop harassment collective of rue Héloïse Duché, for example, put on their purple clothes.
It must be said that the mobilization of #NousToutes, on the occasion of the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women on November 25, is in competition with the other subject of the day: the law on Global security, adopted Friday evening by the National Assembly.
Nevertheless: this Saturday morning, the expression "domestic violence" is in "trending topics" on Twitter, the most discussed subjects of the network.
Posters and interpellations
The activists of #NousToutes are active behind the scenes.
Around 10 a.m., a WhatsApp group offered to copy or print a poster with information on the national telephone number against violence against women, and to suggest to traders to hang it, or even to "put it on. in the lobby of your building ”.

The same group proposed a few minutes later to challenge the government and parliamentarians on the extent of gender-based and sexual violence in France, arguing that “since the Grenelle against domestic violence, no real measure to prevent violence, from the most young age, has not been implemented by the government ”and that“ the budget devoted to the fight against violence (361 million euros) has not been increased ”.
A link refers to a form, then an email to a "user manual" for this inquiry.
The activists are guided, with model texts, to challenge the Prime Minister and his cabinet, ministers or parliamentarians by email or on the networks.
A little research indicates that Gérald Darmanin or Jean Michel Blanquer at this time inspire activists a little more than Elisabeth Moreno or Jean Castex:

"It is extremely important to remain mobilized in these troubled times"
At midday, we walk on the Instagram of the organization's account.
Jeanne Cherhal is live, in a denim shirt in front of a burgundy wall.
She has placed a small statuette next to her piano with her fist raised, a symbol of her commitment.
“Today we can't walk but we're still here,” she says.
She recounts her “very moved” memory of the gathering last year, and the concert at the fertile city that she gave at the end of the march.
"It's really important to stay mobilized in these troubled times," she said before singing
, a song written about her 40 years as a woman "a little kid, a little gazelle", full of energy.

We feel like going for a walk on one of the seven training courses organized today by the association.
At 1:30 pm, it was “Educating for non-violence”.
Geneviève from #NousToutes explains one of the organization's demands: a compulsory non-violence certificate for all college students.
“Good driving must start at an early age,” she says, paraphrasing road safety, which issues a mandatory certificate to pass the license.
On the chat, the reactions are numerous: "It seems to me that education is lifelong so it would be interesting to look at non-violence education with different audiences and not just with children. », Comments for example Marie.

Grace Ly Live
At 2:30 p.m., we have the choice between a live performance by Grace Ly, journalist and co-host of the Kiffe ta race podcast, or a training given by Caroline De Haas.
We start with the first, where Grace Ly appears in video on the same screen as Léonor Guénoun, activist at #NousToutes.
Grace Ly explains to listeners the notion of intersectionality, which "makes it possible to understand that we are at the intersection of several discriminations".
She gives the example of elderly Asian women targeted in a bus line by assailants: "The trial demonstrated the both sexist and racist nature of these assaults," she sums up.

A quiz is displayed on the screen
At the same time, Caroline De Haas is giving the usual warnings for this type of training to the 500 and some participants of the Zoom “How to support a victim of violence”.
"Training can reactivate trauma, and in this case it is better to leave the training," she warns.
Then she runs the program: "Knowing how to qualify violence, passing on tools, knowing the key phrases, putting yourself in the shoes, adopting the right posture and finally knowing how to orient".
A quiz appears on the screen, with the first question: "Repeated massages by a colleague on the neck are sexual assault, true or false?"
Many "true" appear in the chat column.
This is wrong: “Sexual assault is contact with a party considered to be sexual.
»All training sessions will be available for replay on #NousToutes Facebook from November 23.

and member of the National Council for the Protection of Children, Lyes Louffok, the CGT unionist Sophie Binet, and many others speak on Instagram, the singers Mathilde and Pauline Croze give voice, while on other social networks questioning tweets and awareness raising visuals are on the increase.
The marathon day will end at 9 p.m. with a question and answer from Caroline De Haas and Léonor Guénoun, which there is still time to follow here.
