Burt’s Bees Customer Tells Them: Street Harassment is Not Ok!

In offensive ads, street harassment | on 11.14.13 | by | Comments ( 0 )

Today, HollaBack! and a Burt’s Bees customer named Colleen asked for the removal of a product that said, “Soak in the moisturizing seductiveness of shea butter and indulge in the scent of vanilla and rice milk. And let the catcalling commence.” The company agreed to not use it going forward! Yay! You can still sign the petition to show that you, too, don’t believe street harassment should be trivialized.

You can also sign SSH’s petition, written by our volunteer Julie Mastrine, to ask YouTube to take down the Simple Pickup’s station which teaches men how to street harass and assault women!
