If you’re new to the conversation on street harassment and race, please take some time to read Hollaback!’s #harassmentis: our guide on how identity impacts the experience of street harassment. Now is also a good time to take a peek back at our reading list on the topic.

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!
