Since April 26, HollaBack NYC has been posting one photo a day of street harassers. They will continue to do so for a month. All of the photos are being submitted by one woman, Sally N., a New York City resident. Emily at HollaBack NYC says, “We believe these pictures tell the story of what it’s like to be a woman in the big apple.” Visit HollaBack NYC to see these photos.
Holla Back DC! has several new stories this week. In the story, “Hey, pretty lady, give me a smile,” I admire the woman’s presence of mind to respond to him as she does despite being a bit frightened by him.
New Street Harassment Blog:
Through the Stop Violence Against Women group of Amnesty International Mauritius Section, there’s a new anti-street harassment blog, which is part of an anti-street harassment campaign in the country. The blog will officially launch in the next few weeks and a report about street harassment in Mauritius will be published in June.
Holla Back DC! launched two new features on their blog this week. You can submit your stories via an online form and they have a new online street harassment map to track where street harassment is occuring around the city.
Copying Holla Back DC!’s idea, I also launched a new online form so people can more easily submit their street harassment stories and do so completely anonymously.
