“Shit Men Say to Men Who Say Shit to Women on the Streets” was inspired by International Anti-Street Harassment Week. It was created by a group of women and men in NYC who believe that street harassment is wrong, and that we all have a role to play in ending it – especially us guys.
Humor is a great intervention tactic. And a great way to start conversations, as many men have no idea that street harassment is a pervasive, and disturbing, part of everyday life for many women and gender non-conforming people. The video – itself based on a meme – inspired men (and others) around the globe to make similar videos and take action to end harassment.
