NOW (National Organization for Women) Washtenaw Chapter organized a performance-based art about street harassment. The performance was a pop-up runway themed where an announcer announced each volunteer and they walked through the public bus transit area as a way to reclaim this space. As each lady walked through, the announcer described details of a time this person was harassed which include what the person was wearing, what activity they were doing, and what type of harassment. This was meant to show that it doesn’t matter what you’re wearing or what activity you are doing. After each volunteer walked down the runway, the announcer gave a fact about street harassment. As the performance happened, volunteers handed out zines with information about street harassmen.Share on Facebook
