Through a website, blog, and book, Stop Street Harassment takes an international look at the way men’s harassment of girls and women limits gender equality; invites people around the world to break the silence and share their gender-based harassment stories online (both women and men can contribute); and (both online and in the book) provides resources and ideas for action that anyone can take to help make public places safe and welcoming for everyone.

About the Blog:

This is a space for anyone to share their gender-based street harassment stories and strategies for dealing with it. It’s also a place where the administrator comments on street harassment in the news and highlights street harassment activism.

    Dear owner of streetharassment.wordpress.com

    I was on your harassment blog today and really liked it. I have a similar site about harassment law and wanted to see if I could provide FREE high quality content to your site if you would let me put a link back to my site in the article. The article can be on any topic you would like or I could come up with something I feel is relevant to your current content.

    The website I would be linking to in the article is http://www.theharassmentlaw.com if you would like to take a look (no spam here)

    Please let me know if you are interested, I can usually write an article in just a few days you could add to your site.

    And if just in case, I can pay $20 dollars for the article you will post. I will send the payment to your paypal account once the article is posted and verified.
