Q - What is Pin Up Girl?
A - Pin Up Girl is a global network of women working together to make public spaces safe for everyone. We provide access to support and assistance to all female identifying people who, for whatever reason, feel at risk. We wear the Pin Up Girl pins as a visual cue that we are available to help. If you see a woman wearing our pin it means she is available to help if you are feeling unsafe.
Q - Can anyone become a Pin Up Girl?
A - As long as you are female identifying and over the age of 18, YES, you can become a Pin Up Girl.
Q - How do you make sure the women wearing the pins are actually Pin Up Girls who abide by the organization’s agreements and are safe?
A - Although there is no guaranteed way of knowing that all the women wearing our pins live by our values, we have created an agreement that we ask each Pin Up Girl to read and agree to prior to purchasing a pin.
Q - What if I’m not sure that someone wearing the Pin Up Girl pin is a safe member?
A - Trust your instincts! We strongly urge that you never do anything to compromise your own safety.
Never get into a car with a stranger, even if she’s wearing the pin. Never go anywhere alone with someone, never give out any personal information, and when in doubt call the police.
You have the right to refuse assistance at any time.
Our goal is that wherever you go there will be Pin Up Girls all around you and that if someone isn’t wearing the pin with integrity another Pin Up Girl will step in and do the right thing.
