Friday Feminist Fuck Yeah: Sh*t Men Say to Men Who Say Sh*t to Women on the Street

While the Shit ____ Say meme may be so yesterday, International Anti-Street Harassment Week is just coming to a close, and this video deserves a shout-out.

Thanks guys for having our backs. As one of creators of the video wrote in thoughtful post, it’s not always easy to “to hold ourselves and other men accountable for our violence and our silence.” But sometimes being a good feminist ally is as simple as joining us in our exasperation and saying, “Please stop.”

    Thanks for posting about Anti-Street Harassment Week twice!! Appreciate the support

    I also wanted to alert readers to the events taking place tomorrow. Rallies in New York City, Philadelphia and Delhi, India; a chalkwalk in Brussels, Belgium, a Girls Forum in San Luis Obispo, CA, and street theater and a speakout in Washington, DC.

    There’s always an opportunity to share your street harassment story for the blog too.
