Hollaback! Boston knows that our identities shape the kind of harassment we experience and the way in which we experience it. Part of the work that we do involves bringing that to light, and working to address the ways in which oppressions can intersect.
We recently facilitated a discussion on street harassment and race, and put together a pre-discussion reading list for participants. We thought that it would be useful to share that list here, for anyone who is interested in doing some reading about the ways in which race and gender intersect when it comes to street harassment. This list was compiled by team members Brandie and Brenda, who facilitated the discussion.
For more information on intersectionality, identity, and street harassment, be sure to check out Hollaback!’s #harassmentis campaign. Are you interested in discussing this further? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule our new We HOLLABACK: Let’s Talk About Race workshop.
