It made me feel uncomfortable and self-conscious

13 Jun

As I was walking home from work, within the amount of time it took me to walk this block several male drivers from separate vehicles started honking at me, whistling, and sticking their heads out the window while yelling sexual comments. It didn’t make me feel complimented–it made me feel uncomfortable and self-conscious.  (Location: Speedway between Euclid and Park; reported by 23 year old female)

 

 

Say What? Photobooth event in Tucson calls out cat calls and other crimes

14 Aug

Tomorrow, join Safe Streets AZ in calling out cat calls and other crimes with our first (of many!)  photobooths.

Create hand-held speech bubbles and strike a pose to let the world know what you think about street harassment!

 Use fun props and bring your friends for this photobooth event taking place this Thursday, August 16th, at Revolutionary Grounds 606 N 4th Avenue, 5:30pm – 7pm.

Support a local business and make a statement with a photo speech bubble that says it all.

  Don’t live in Tucson, AZ? Make your own speech bubble using one of these stencils, snap a photo, and send it in! safestreetsaz@gmail.com.*  We’ll be featuring our favorites on Facebook and the blog next week.

Been cat called, followed, or otherwise harassed on the street? With our Submission Station, you and your friends will be able to share your story at the Photobooth event.

For more details and to RSVP, check out our Facebook event.

*Participants will be required to sign and return a photo release granting the Southern Arizona Center Against Sexual Assault, it’s program Safe Streets AZ, and parent organization Arizona’s Children Association permission to use and to publicize the photo.
