The Line
Provides a website for young people which talks about relationships, gender, sex, bystander action, technology and communication. Do you know where to draw the line? Sometimes, there’s no argument about where to draw the line in our friendships and relationships. But the line can get blurry. So, we're here to talk about it. We talk about how to keep behaviours healthy and respectful, and avoid crossing the line that makes someone feel frightened, intimidated or diminished.
