March 20th is the International Day Against Street Harassment…

We at YWAT are very happy to hear that the recognition of street harassment as a harm to girls and women is picking up steam. When we launched our first “Day of Action” against street harassment in Chicago in 2006, we hoped that many other cities would follow suit. Now the movement is a global one and we feel really gratified about this.
