With the fall weather finally setting in, it seems like there are fewer harassers on the street, and fewer stories for the blog.
In the meantime, here are a few anti-street harassment bits of news:
- HollaBack launched a new website, check it out!
- Comedian/Actress/Writer Giulia Rozzi has a great article about catcalling in the Huffington Post today.
- A few weeks ago Stop Street Harassment ally Elizabeth Mendez Berry wrote a great op-ed for El Diario and she just got word that it prompted NY city council member Julissa Ferreras to plan a hearing on the issue in December. Articles can prompt change! (More info on this to come)
- “30 Rock” is a tv show I watch each week and I was disappointed with how Tina Fey addressed street harassment in last week’s episode. I haven’t made time to write about it, but HollaBack DC! did today.
