Hollaback Organization Around The World
In my research, I came across the Hollaback organization which aims to end street harassment. There was a plethora of research in developed and developing nations on what constitutes street harassment, who tends to experience it and how often. Internationally, women have experienced this harassment as young as 12 years old. This, combined with the negative emotions that come with it, are especially disheartening.
Here are my thoughts & things to consider:
1. Education = empowerment; not just for females but for young males too
2. Will education serve as a preventative measure for future generations?
3. Will education from a young age translate to adulthood?

My research specifically on street harassment was inspired after reading today's featured contribution "Talk To Me."
