Article Information

Background Hollaback! Ottawa produced a report based on an open forum we held and the results of a survey we conducted on levels and types of street harassment in Ottawa.
Reason Metro is the primary newspaper for transit riders, so they have been following our work about harassment on public transit very closely.
Comment It was great to see an article focusing on the survey results and in particular, low reporting rates.
Outcome It's always great to get exposure for our work, particularly in a paper that is so widely read by commuters.
