Celebrating Our Peers on International Women’s Day

In the last twenty years there has been an explosion of grassroots movements led by young men and women to create greater awareness of the issue of street harassment and find creative solutions to a complex societal issue. Here at SAFER: NYC, we believe the solution to ending street harassment is by changing the minds and behavior of men, particularly those men who engage in street harassment or simply do not consider it a genuine issue. And we’re in good company! For International Women’s Day, SAFER: NYC would like to highlight the work of two great organizations that are also working to engage men in the movement to end street harassment and are addressing the issue of violence head on.
