Meet Us On the Street: International Anti-Street Harassment Week


Street harassment is not a complimentToday starts Meet Us On the Street: International Anti-Street Harassment Week. Join activists from 35 countries as they rally, march, and hold workshops, tweet chats, wheatpasting and chalkwalks to bring attention to this problem and engage their communities in solutions. CALCASA is please to be a co-sponsor of this week.

(For those who do not know, wheatpasting is a form of guerrilla street art.)

This week is part of Sexual Assault Awareness Month. In our work to prevent sexual violence, it is important to recognize street harassment as a part of the continuum of behaviors that builds and reinforces rape culture.  By working to prevent street harassment, we will make our communities and environments safer for all.

What are you going to do to end street harassment?
