Sexual and Street Harassment
Hollaback! – a movement dedicated to ending street harassment using mobile technology. Street harassment is one of the most pervasive forms of gender-based violence and one of the least legislated against. Comments from "You'd look good on me" to groping, flashing and assault are a daily, global reality for women and LGBTQ individuals. But it is rarely reported, and it's culturally accepted as 'the price you pay' for being a woman or for being gay. At Hollaback!, we don't buy it, New York, NY. See legal analysis of harassment law.
Stop Street Harassment Project – a nonprofit organization dedicated to documenting and ending gender-based street harassment worldwide. It started as a blog in 2008 and slowly grew and became incorporated as a 501(c)3 in 2012. We believe that street harassment impedes gender equality and must be taken seriously. Because street harassment often is an invisible problem (especially to people in power) and it is dismissed as being a "minor annoyance," a "joke," or the fault of the harassed person, our primary focus right now is simply to document the problem and demonstrate why it's a human rights violation that must be addressed, Reston, VA.
The Street Harassment Project – works to fight street harassment of women by men in all of its forms with our ultimate goal of having a society where women can go wherever we want, when we want, dress the way we choose and be able to express ourselves, including sexually, in freedom and in safety, New York, NY.
