Hollaback! around the World
We are thrilled to announce that Hollaback! Baltimore’s site leader, Shawna Potter recently had an interview with Teen Vogue about the release of her new book, “Making Spaces Safer”. We at Hollaback! HQ cannot even fathom the words to describe how happy we are for our team members and what it means for you all, receiving pertinent information to protect yourself. Feel free to check out the Teen Vogue’s article by clicking here. Also, if you are interested in giving harassment “ the boot”, purchase your copy “Making Safer Spaces” here.
As it pertains to women’s empowerment and the trials and tribulations faced, we celebrate today one of our leading pioneers in women’s rights, Malala Yousafzai. We say to all, Happy Malala Day! Malala is a Pakistani activist who had the courage to speak out about young women’s education and rights despite the fear of being attacked, death threats and many other risks. I mean, she was even a survivor from a gun-shot to the head. Her activism is an inspiration to many folks to stand up for their rights even when you’re afraid to be yourself. We should follow Malala’s footsteps down that road and stand up for justice.
Catch you in our next issue of A Week In Our Shoes!
