Stop Street Harassment- Holly Kearl


Stop Street Harassment-Making Public Space Safe and Welcoming for Women by Holly Kearl

Over a 1000 women contributed to Holly Kearl's book Stop Street Harassment. Women participated through her blog and also through 'informal online surveys'. 16 respondents of the 916 respondents said they were from India.


"In my research, I was struck by how truly global this problem is. People in 23 countries and 45 US states all took the survey and 99% said they experienced street harassment and I read articles about the problem in many additional countries. In my research on activism, India was one of the countries that is doing the most to address this issue and so it can really be a leader for other countries".


Holly will be in India very soon to attend Jagori and Women in Cities International conference on women's safety in Delhi.
