If you participated, thank you so much for putting in the time and effort to join the 2017 International Anti-Street Harassment Week! Nearly 200 groups in 40 countries took part!! From marches to rallies to workshops to chalking to online campaigns and media interviews, thanks to YOU, millions of people were made more aware about why street harassment is a problem — and how we can work to stop it.
You can read highlights from each day (with photos) on our blog:
People all over the world joined the Global Tweetathon on April 4 (see the Storify) and the various tweet chats.
We partnered again with Stop Telling Women to Smile for the International Wheatpasting Night. People participated from Berlin (Germany), Duluth (Minnesota), Albuquerque (New Mexico), New Orleans (Louisiana), Chicago (Illinois), New York (New York), London (UK), Bristol (UK) and Toronto (Canada).
Thank you to Britnae Purdy & Elisa Melo for their help and thank you to all of our guest bloggers, tweet chat hosts, and event organizers!!!
