On October 15, Hollaback! is launching “Harassment Is: An exploration of identity and street harassment”. Using stories from the Hollaback! sites, the guide invites the reader to practice recognizing how people’s identities and oppressions overlap and how that can affect how they walk down the street.
As part of the “Harassment Is” campaign, we are organizing a #harassmentis tweetup on October 17th at 1pm EDT – we invite all of you to join in and contribute.
Using the hashtag #harassmentis, we encourage people to tell their stories of what street harassment can look/feel like. We believe that expanding this conversation is the first step for all of us to create solutions and responses to street harassment.
It all starts with telling your story. On October 17th, tweet what #harassmentis to you and, when you submit stories to the Hollaback! sites, tag them with #harassmentis to expand the conversation around street harassment.
