A Webinar with Dr. NiCole Buchanan Street harassment was originally defined as a form of sexual harassment occurring in public places and included “cat calls,” “flashing” or groping a woman. Recently, there has been increased attention to street harassment targeting individuals due to their race, ethnicity, or religion. Notably, since the results of the presidential election on November 8, 2016, there have been hundreds of documented cases of street harassment and a desire to learn more about how to respond. This workshop discusses street harassment and strategies for responding whether you are being targeted or you are a bystander or ally wanting to help interrupt street harassment.
