Harassment, whether it is acted out verbally or physically, is a form of abuse that nearly all women (and some men) have experienced. Many face harassment on a regular basis; whether from strangers on the street or public transit, strangers or friends online, or co-workers in the office, harassment is unwelcome, degrading attention that dehumanizing another person. Harassment can turn into outright sexual assault and may precede other forms of violence.

Non-profit movements combating street harassment include Stop Street Harassment, Meet Us On The Street, and Hollaback!
