It started with a conversation.

Two sisters, 15 and 21, spoke about how they experience the world as young women. 

 

How they feel scared walking home at night. 

How they feel anxious in an empty train carriage. 

How they feel sexualised in their school uniform. 

 

They raged about the fact that public sexual harassment is belitted, ignored and normalised. And they decided to do something.

IT LED TO A MOVEMENT.

 OUR STREETS NOW 

 a campaign demanding the right of women and girls to feel and be safe in public space. 

Channelling this anger into change, they decided to start a petition.

 

Hundreds of women and girls went online to share their stories of being insulted, followed and assaulted in public space. Soon enough, thousands of voices were joining the Our Streets Now movement, tired of harassment being a ‘normal’ part of being a girl.

 

Our Streets Now became a community determined to challenge the myths and taboos stopping this topic from being discussed, and challenged, out in the open.
