Black Woman Walking

We don't have a lot to say these days as we continue to balance our feelings about the importance of fighting street harassment - what we believe is a part of the spectrum of sexual violence - and dealing with the racism and classism so apparent in the work being done to combat unsolicited advances, particularly the homogeneity of the dialogue as it exists online.

Nevertheless, we wanted to post two items of note: a new street harassment survey is out, compiling information for a forthcoming book on the topic - go check it out! And take eight minutes for this amazing video by Tracey Rose. Hat tip to WhatAboutOurDaughters for the link.

Thank you so much for posting this video! I had originally seen it on the Model Minority's blog and sent it to a few sites I frequent. Glad to see it's making the rounds.

This video encapsulated the daily ordeal I go through as a Black woman in DC.

I needed to watch this. I feel alone for the most part when it comes to dealing with these kinds of issues and this video proves that I'm not.

Thank you!
