A few weeks ago, I was contacted by Jake Winn, a Peace Corps volunteer and a youth development facilitator in northern Azerbaijan, on the Russian and Georgian borders. He is also a member of Peace Corps Azerbaijan’s WID/GAD (Women in Development/Gender and Development) executive committee.
He said, “Inspired by your ‘Shit Men Say to Men Who Say Shit to Women on the Street,’ some of my male students made their own Anti-Street Harassment video. The title, “Ay Gardash! Kishi Ol!”, can be translated to, ‘Hey man, be a gentleman!” We now plan on distributing the video throughout the country, along with a lesson plan and discussion questions for other volunteers to use with their own students.”
He recently sent me the lesson plan and said Stop Street Harassment readers were welcome to use it!
If anyone else has classroom resources on street harassment they’d be willing to share, please let me know. This site is all about idea and resource sharing.Share on Facebook
