From Hollaback! HQ
In this edition of “A Week In Our Shoes,” we are giving a grand shout out to all the awesome women change-makers this second week of “Women’s History Month.”
A Short Letter to All Women
You continue to carry an unbreakable shield
In a patriarchal field
Still, you continue to persevere and use your voice despite the odds
Thank you, for not allowing society to keep you on the ground floor
You continue to push pass the callous words and detrimental glass-ceilings which deserves a grand applause
Your tenacity, compassion, and innovative ideas roars
To all the amazing women, past, present, and future…….Thank You
A fellow pioneer
– Asha Nelson

Around The World
Shout Out to @HollabackCroatia!!! The ‘I did not ask’ campaign revealed the extent of sexual harassment and violence in educational institutions, in the workplace, on the streets of our cities. Countless painful testimonies, dozens of reports of sexual harassment and violence addressed to Croatian academies and faculties, testify to two key problems: impunity for sexual violence and the lack of a prevention system. We call on everyone to SUPPORT and SIGN the petition for the introduction of comprehensive sex education as a compulsory subject in primary and secondary schools! Click here to support.
Catch you in our next issue of A Week In Our Shoes!
