More than 500 Boston area residents responded to our survey with their street harassment experiences, and we’ve used that data to compile a report on the state of our streets. The data was sourced from our online, self-report survey, open to all August 1-31, 2013. Click through to take a look at the full report!

No time to read the details right now? Take a peek at this summary, too:

Data used to compile the graphic above is also based on our self-report survey; read more in the full report, then take a moment to learn the Four D’s of Bystander Intervention, share your stories, and let us know what you would add.

We actively denounce the notion that street harassment is culturally accepted and that victims somehow "deserve" it. Through raising awareness and sharing experiences, we hope to put an end to catcalling, groping, stalking, public masturbation, assaults, racial slurs, and other forms of street harassment. Because we believe we have the power to create a world where we can feel hot, confident, and badass, while still feeling safe!
