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)

 

 

The report is in, and street harassment’s out!

The report with an international retort to street harassment! Suffice it to say, communities around the world are calling for an end to street harassment

Check out the overview of the FIRST International Anti-Street Harassment Week, March 18-24 2012. Read about activities and intiatives that took place in over 18 countries in cities around the world. Many of these projects continue to take place and gather momentum as communities come together to end street harassment.

Safe Streets AZ is featured on pages 86-87 along with other, amazing USA-based movements.

Thanks to our Tucson community for getting involved, and to Stop Street Harassment for organizing this monumental collaboration.

But what about…? How do I…?

We will pick one a week, and ask multiple community members and experts on that topic to respond!
