You are probably familiar with it, or at least have heard of it—street harassment: the unwanted catcalls, sexually explicit and sexist comments, and homophobic slurs; the leering, staring, and stalking; even flashing, groping, and assault. Street harassment is an everyday occurrence for many; it is invasive, disempowering, dehumanizing, and often embarrassing. Street harassment is scary, and needs to be stopped. During Anti-Street Harassment Week the National Network to End Domestic Violence (NNEDV) recognizes the need to create safe streets for everyone.

According to statistics released in 2012 by the United States Census Bureau, women are paid, on average, 78 cents for every dollar their male counterparts are paid.  Equal Pay Day, observed this year on April 12, represents how far into 2016 the average woman must work in order to earn what white men earned in 2015.
