From the 18th until the 24th of March it is international Anti-Street Harassment Week. Expanding into an entire week after the huge response to 2011’s International Anti-Street Harassment Day, when more than 2000 people from 13 countries participated.
Men and women took part to end street harassment in Delhi, Cairo, Washington DC, Kabul and New York. All inspired by Stop Street Harassment blog founder Holly Kearl.
This short film, by film maker Nuala Cabral describes some of the treatment people think they have to put up with, to ignore, on the streets.
If you want to take part you can take a look at the Meet us on the Street participation page who ask you to change your Facebook profile picture and use the Twitter hashtag #EndSHWeek.
