Over 99% of women have experienced some form of street harassment in their lifetime. Street harassment affects the safety of millions. It does not confine itself to women: race, sexual orientation or gender identity increases the severity of harassment exponentially. This panel discussion will examine the complex dimensions of street harassment, its shocking normality in our culture, how it interacts with different communities and how masculinity plays a role in perpetuating the issue. Attendees will come away with tools necessary for taking action on this issue in their lives.
Panelists: Paridise Valentino, Programs & Development Director/Founder of the S.P.O.T.S. Program, Trans Youth Support Network; Katie Eichele, Director, Aurora Center for Advocacy & Education; Zenzele Isoke, Associate Professor, Department of Gender, Women, and Sexuality Studies; Mike Cheney, CSPP Graduate Student/Facilitator, University Men’s Network & The Dude Group, Women’s Center.
