International Anti-Street Harassment Week, April 10-16

In its sixth year, Meet Us on the Street: International Anti-Street Harassment Week (April 10-16) will be observed in more than 30 countries. Tens of thousands of people in countries like Afghanistan, Australia, Cameroon, Chile, Egypt, France, Guatemala, the Maldives, Nepal, and Yemen will participate in actions that challenge the prevalent social problem of gender-based street harassment, something that studies suggest most women and many LGBTQ individuals face globally.

Women for a Change, Cameroon is hosting a workshop for youth. “Participating in the Anti-Street Harassment Week means so much to us in terms of building cross-border solidarity against any forms of abuse or violence against women and girls,” said Zoneziwoh Mbondgulo, the organization’s founder. Youth Advocacy Nepal (YAN) will organize a youth workshop, flash mob, sidewalk chalking, street drama, rally, photo campaign, and more. YAN president Naren Khatiwada said, “Street harassment based on gender has been a neglected issue in Nepal, but it needs to be on the public agenda.”
