Abstract

I Never Ask for It! Street Harassment as a Transnational Feminist Issue Debjani Chakravarty This paper analyzes resistance to street harassment as a feminist issue, a form of gender violence that interferes with womens access to public spaces, and ability and need to use and inhabit streets, public transport, parks, shops and other areas of recreation and livelihood. Studying and comparing the crowdsourced resistance models of Blank Noise in India, Harrassmap in Egypt and Hollaback worldwide, a new form of transnational feminism is imagined, based on shared strategies and collective resistance.
