Christina’s Story: “This doesn’t happen here!”

This guy must think he is real hot shit with his dick up and out on a twice-an-hour bus in an industrial Halifax suburb (read: not hot shit). Once some men moved to the back of the bus and sat near him he hid it away so fast … please. But as much as I tried not rise to his challenge by reacting, I was really bothered by it.

This doesn’t happen here! I guess maybe it does … How do women deal with this on a regular basis?

We intend to put an end to catcalling, groping, stalking, public masturbation, assaults, racial slurs, and other forms of street harassment. We believe we have the power to create a world where we can feel hot, confident, and badass, while still feeling safe. Everyone deserves to be able to walk our streets without fear.
