50 Stories about Stopping Street Harassers
From catcalls, sexist, homophobic, and transphobic speech to flashing, stalking, and groping, gender-based street harassment is a problem in public places worldwide. Ending it will require the help of people from all parts of society and a complete cultural shift. In the meantime, harassment happens - so what can we do about it?
While there is no "best" way to deal with harassers, each story offers creative, entertaining, and empowering techniques and strategies for readers to consider trying out when they feel safe.
The 50 stories were submitted to or featured on the Stop Street Harassment blog. They are about women and men of all ages and backgrounds in 16 countries, from Afghanistan to Tasmania.
At the end, readers can write down three things they can realistically see themselves saying or doing when they experience or witness street harassment and feel safe enough to take action.
