The Blank Noise Project - Action Heroes

In alliance with the Blank Noise Project, aimed at combating street harassment - "Eve Teasing" - in India, March 8 marks the date for bloggers worldwide to blog their stories.

This year for International Women's Day, Blank Noise is asking you to share experiences of times when you were an ACTION HERO and fought back against harassment.

"When did you flip a situation so you could resist, when did you give back as hard as you got? How did you choose to confront the situation? When did you become an Action Hero?

Blank Noise hopes that the written accounts and responses will help us understand the different strategies women (across age groups, cultures, and countries) have instinctively created to deal with street sexual harassment.

(If you're a male blogger, ask your female friends and relatives about their experiences.)

Here's how to participate:

1. blog your story (as soon as possible, and definitely before March 8!)

2. email the link to your blog post to blurtblanknoise@gmail.com with a subject titled "Action Heroes Online"

3. they will link to you right away!

And don't forget your non-blogging friends and family members - they'd love to hear stories from your mothers, aunties and grandmothers!
