Quick break from the format today to present some videos commemorating International Anti-Street Harassment Week. First, out of New York City, via Clutch Magazine, is “Sh-t Men Say To Men Who Say Sh-t To Women On The Street”:
The next video, also based out of NYC, isn’t directly related to gender-based street harassment, but as the Crunk Feminist Collective points out, it’s not that dissimilar:
The CFC raises this point about the video:
I also wonder what it is about the death of a young black man that gets people moving. There wasn’t the same mobilization around Aiyana Jones but I wonder if it’s also an accumulation of wrongs?
What does justice look like here? And why are we still pleading for justice? How do we (can we) take it? How and when will we make connections between our movements?
Courtesy of Media That Matters, here’s Nuala Cabral’s “Walking Home,” which Cabral says “has led to some necessary dialogue about street harassment and the issues it brings up, such as self-esteem, gender, sexuality, violence and community.” Last year, Cabral went on to coordinate International Anti Street Harassment Day efforts in her town. (Video is NSFW – language.)
