PeerProject ForYouth: Hollaback! Part II

Rainbow Resource Centre, 170 Scott Street 
January 25, 11:00 am to 2:00 pm  

Have you ever been yelled at, whistled at, or groped in the the street, 
at the mall, in the hallways at school? 
How do you respond? Do you respond at all?  
Do you wish you knew what to do?  
This workshop's for you!!  

This is PART TWO of this workshop series on street harassment. 
It will be led by Jodie, who started up the Winnipeg chapter of Hollaback!   

FEEL FREE TO COME TO PART TWO even if you didn't attend part one. 
Come participate in this discussion! The more voices, the better!!!  

"...Hollaback! is a movement dedicated to ending street harassment. Comments to groping, flashing and assault are a daily, global reality for women and LGBTTQ individuals.  But it is rarely reported and culturally accepted as ‘the price you pay’ for being a woman 
or for being gay.   
We believe that everyone has a right to feel safe and confident without being objectified. Sexual harassment is a gateway crime that creates a cultural environment that makes gender-based violence OK.   
Hollaback! breaks the silence that has perpetuated sexual violence internationally..."
Jodie, founder and director of Winnipeg Hollaback!
