RESPONDING TO STREET HARASSMENT AND GENDER-BASED VIOLENCE

Hollaback! Boston is hosting a discussion called 'Responding to Street Harassment and Gender-based Violence' at The Women's Center in Cambridge. Learn about street harassment, how to safely respond, and get tips for bystander intervention.

We, at The Women's Center, are really looking for ways to expand our community and build on our activist background. If you can't make this event, we encourage you to check out our calendar for another one that may work for your schedule. Or HOST an event in our space! Cambridgewomenscenter.org or [masked] for more info.

 

 

 

 

*Sorry guys, The Women's Center is a woman-only space*

    Hi! I hope there will be more of these that a submissive guy like me, who believes in female led relationships/societies, can attend. Feminism helps my beliefs because freeing us from patriarchy allows women be more open to being dominant and works to eliminate the enforced societal stigma that a man should not be subservient to a woman or that men who are, are somehow weak/spineless, which is a view held by both men and women.

      Unfortunately, The Women's Center will more than likely always remain a woman-only space. Many of the women who come to our center do so in search of a safe location free of male influence - as many of them have at least one experience of assault or coercion that has left them uncomfortable in the presence of men. Hollaback! however does events all over the city and in many locations accessible to all genders! We thank you for your beliefs and support -- Hopefully, over time, we can all be united as one and as our social norms change and become more inclusive of all we'll no longer have an overwhelming need for feminism.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
