During the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence (Nov. 25 – Dec. 10), Stop Street Harassment is featuring activists who took action against street harassment this year, one new country per day.
Day #14: The UK
The Ending Violence Against Women Coalition released two studies about street harassment in London. One study found that 43 percent of women had been harassed during the previous year and the second one honed in on harassment that takes place on public transportation. They successfully pressured several of the candidates who ran for mayor of London earlier this year to put street harassment on their agenda, but sadly, none of those candidates were elected.
The UK Anti-Street Harassment Campaign organized an initiative called “Flirting. Harassment. Real Men Know the Difference.”Share on Facebook
