I recently read an article about this site Cards Against Harassment (neat little play off the game) which can be found here, about this woman who is both addressing and recording street harassment that happens to her. This is only her experience, but many people have been on the unhappy end of street harassment. It usually starts with you minding your business, doing some activity whether it is walking to work, riding the subway, or trying to get some coffee, when someone decides they have a right to make a comment about your sexual appeal, sexual orientation, weight, etc.

Her cards are rather amazing and the fact that she hands them out to people who make comments to her is even better. Regardless of the excuses they make, she is setting up a boundary that lets them know she is not alright with their actions, and neither are many other people who may not speak up.

Check out the website and see what she is up to!
