Street harassment is a gross truth in our city. The issue has recently been in the media in a big way thanks to local women who took to social media to call out a local “pick-up artist” who was harassing and cornering women in Ottawa. The result? #CorneredInOttawa
Summer time might mean an increase in street harassment but it also means an increase in opportunities to fight back.
So, let’s take to the streets, spread anti-street harassment cheer and educate the masses.
It’s Chalk Walk time again!
The Feminist Twins joined us at our last Chalk Walk to spread the good word.
Meet-up at 3pm on Sunday, August 2nd at Bank and Laurier (outside Eggspectation). We’ll bring the chalk, you bring the energy.
Anyone and everyone is welcome, regardless of gender, age, ability or artistic talent! Bring your kids, pets, roommates, grandmother. Come one, come all!
THIS EVENT IS WEATHER DEPENDENT. Please check the Facebook event page by noon to see if we’ll have to cancel because of the rain.
RSVP on Facebook
After the Chalk Walk, join us at the Comic Book Shoppe for Ladies Night! We’ll be tabling, handing out info and chatting with folks about Cosplay =/= Consent.
See you soon, pals!
P.S Mark your calendars for August 23rd and get ready to wave at us as we march at Pride!
