Focusing primarily on India, the treatment of women lies not on the surface, but deeply rooted in the culture of the country. Not only do women have to face the burden of being the non-preferred gender, but they are not empowered by society to get an

Daniel, I enjoyed this video and am now currently exploring the website. Thank you for sharing this. Upon first glance, it appears to be very US-centric (although some of their statistics include international facts). I'm curious to see your thoughts and ideas as we progress to use this research as an approach for more international, lower income regions. What does the information that this organization is about mean to you specifically? Would love to hear your thoughts.

Kimberley commented on Hollaback Organization Around The World

Marina, thank you for sharing your story and insight. I think you bring up some fantastic points that I hadn't fully considered. I particularly agree with and applaud your thoughts on men using these actions to attract the attention they desire. Similarly, I went to Egypt in 2010, and while I am not a blonde woman, I too, experienced harassment. I was very conscious of the clothing that I packed, and I was walking around with my boyfriend. I received many stares and my boyfriend even received an offer for me! Obviously, this behavior made me feel uncomfortable at the time. So, I can relate to the story of your travels. Thanks again... this was a great post!
