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 The Ottawa Sun has been following our work since our inception, so they picked up our press release in relation to the survey.
Comment It was great to see the journalist preempting the skepticism around our survey methodology.
Outcome The Ottawa Sun is notoriously a right-wing paper, so it's always encouraging to see progressive coverage of sexual violence issues. In this case, to talk about the impacts of street harassment on women in Ottawa is a huge victory for us.
