Words, like you, are powerful. And like you, they can inform others, inspire action, and change the world.

Read a few choice words this week on street harassment and in turn share a few of your own.


In preparation for the 1st International Anti-Street Harassment Week March 18-24, we’ve compiled a list of articles, blogs, and books. This is by no means a comprehensive list. Feel like something’s missing? Have a good read that you need to share? Leave a comment and tell us about it.

HISTORY – Just how deep do the roots of street harassment reach?

TAKING ACTION – Intervention, Responses, and Organization

STORIES – first-hand experiences, observations, perspectives

THEORY – various thoughts about how and why street harassment is the way it is

GENDER, RACE & SEXUALITY – multiple factors; deep impacts

MISC – other interesting reads

Listing these resources doesn’t mean that you or I will agree with every author. However, all writing on this under-reported, under-researched issue helps to put it into context & build a foundation for change.
