STAMP (Stamp out Media Patriarchy) is a project which aims to tackle gender stereotyping in the media and encourage more positive use of the media amongst young people. STAMP is funded by Young Start National Lottery Community Fund (which exists to help children and young people across Scotland become more confident, so they can realise their own potential) and STAMP is managed and supported by Lanarkshire Rape Crisis Centre.
