CHALK BACK EVENTS AROUND THE WORLD

HARASSMENT IN SCHOOLS CAMPAIGN

16 DAYS OF ACTIVISM

2020

 

events

We host public events, that allow people the opportunity to share their experiences and chalk them in the pavement alongside us. The events provide a space for people to talk, learn, and join us in raising awareness on how widespread of an issue street harassment is.

stop harassment in schools campaign

Our #stopharassmentinschools series was inspired by the numerous messages from middle and high school students who were facing gender-based harassment in schools. We were struck by the similarities between catcalling, which happens on the streets, and the harassing comments faced by teenagers at school. 

Many of the young girls that messaged us had a similar story that after they were harassed and reported it to an authority figure they were dismissed, often told it wasn’t a big deal, or simply that “boys will be boys”.

We wanted to give these students a place to share their stories and ultimately, realize they were not alone in their experience. Moreover, we wanted to show people from just how young this behaviour— gender-based harassment— is learned and normalized.

 

16 Days of Activism 2020

DAY 1

November 25th, International Day of Elimination of Violence Against Women. Around the world, our team members chalked butterflies and names of victims of gender-based violence as a tribute. 

DAY 2

Workplace harassment continues to be a persistent form of GBV. Six in ten working women have had a male colleague behave inappropriately towards them, but only 27% report these incidents to a senior employee.

DAY 3

Online harassment and abuse, from impersonation accounts to hateful slurs and death threats, began with the advent of the internet itself, but the problem is pervasive. The online world needs to become a safer space.

16 Days of Activism is an international campaign to challenge violence against women and girls.

It runs from November 25th through December 10th.  Check out our social media campaign to address street harassment and gender-based violence through chalk art.
