OUCH! Your Silence Hurts

Do you ever stand by silently when you feel you should speak up? If so, your silence hurts. Many people say they want to speak up when they see others stereotyped, disrespected, or demeaned -- but they stand by silently because of discomfort or the fear of saying the wrong thing. They may turn away thinking “who am I to get involved, this isn't my business”. In fact, as a bystander, you ARE part of the conversation. You are the audience. Your silence allows the disrespectful behavior to continue

  • Helps people understand the high cost of silent collusion
  • Show how the power of the bystander can make a difference
  • Challenges passive bystanders to use their voice as active allies

Ouch! Your Silence Hurts

Run time: 16 Minutes total running time

Ouch! challenges viewers by asking, "How will you personally respond next time you witness somebody being treated with disrespect?" You have a choice: Passive Bystander or Pro-active Ally.

In a powerful and compelling way, Ouch! Your Silence Hurts motivates bystanders to use their voice to speak up for respect on behalf of someone else. In the Ouch! video, you'll hear about the role of the silent bystander.

The video shows that when you hear a disrespectful comment or joke, you have a choice:
- Reinforce it by laughing or joining in.
- Tolerate it by saying nothing (which is what most people do).
- Or, speak up and become an ally -- the hardest thing of all.

You may think that by saying nothing you’re making things better, or at least not making things worse. But sometimes silence is not golden. Your silence sends a message that you agree, or at the least you don’t object. Is that the message you want to send?

Ouch! Your Silence Hurts will continue the conversation Ouch! That Stereotype Hurts started.

"When we speak, we are afraid our words will not be heard or welcomed. But when we are silent, we are still afraid. So it is better to speak.” - Audre Lorde, Poet and Activist

"Silence remains, inescapably, a form of speech." - Susan Sontag

Early reviews of Ouch! Your Silence Hurts:

"Quadruples the impact of Ouch! That Stereotype Hurts"
"Hits you at a GUT level!"
"I felt the stories of this video."

"I have one word, FABULOUS!!! This video gives real, gut-wrenching examples of individuals and situations. Most important, it challenges people and gives them the idea that they have the ability to confront stereotypes by showing them how. Ouch! will be so helpful because most people want to do something but don’t know what or how."
