Marking our one year foray into the blog world, we’ve decided to host a Blog-a-thon on the issue of street harassment. No, you don’t have to run anywhere (thankfully) to participate, you’ve just got to get to your computer this TUESDAY (7th MARCH) and post your thoughts on street harassment/ eve teasing on your blog.
You can write about anything related to the topic: testimonies, opinions on harassment, comments about the Blank Noise project, would all be great. It doesn't matter where you're from, where you live, or whether you're a man or a woman - we'd love to have you on board.
If you’d like to participate, send an email to blurtblanknoise[AT]gmail.com before the coming Monday (6th March). We’ll add your name and blogsite to the ‘running’ list of participants on the Blank Noise blogsite so that everyone can see what everyone else is writing about the topic. Also, just to get the maximum number of people 'out' for this event - we'd request that you put up a posting on your blog prior to Monday to encourage other people to participate, and to let them know to check your blog on Monday.
So join one, join all!
Much to my relief, I have got some responses to my desperate plea about Blank Noise. Now, could we all meet up? I would suggest a weekend, for obvious reasons. And someplace in between town and the suburbs so it's convenient for everyone.
Mail me, post a comment, whatever - but let's get this show on the road. It would be wonderful if we could do it right this weekend - the 25/26.
My email - firstname.lastname@example.org.
