Check out Harvard Students Demand Respect: students united against gender-based violence and discrimination
MARCH 12 - Last week, the Massachusetts Supreme Court made a decision that "upskirting," the practice of photographing or videotaping up women's skirts in public places, is not illegal in MA. The MA law has since been changed, but is indicative of laws and policies nationwide that take a woman's silence as consent. Concerned Harvard Kennedy School students are calling for policies that protect a woman's right to consent at Harvard, in Massachusetts, and across the country. Take action Wednesday by wearing a skirt and joining us in the Forum between 11:30 am-1:00 pm. Drawing inspiration from artist Tatyana Fazlalizadeh's "Stop Telling Women to Smile" series and the #iTooAmHarvard campaign, we'll be posting responses online in real time to #DemandRespect.
MAY 2 UPDATE - As our coalition gains momentum, we hope to see the photo project continue at Harvard and around the country. With this week's White House Task Force report, it's time we have a national conversation about consent. Send us your photo with your response of why consent matters to you!
