What People are Saying About This

Courtney E. Martin

"Whose streets? Out streets! Holly Kearl's new book is the manifesto for a new movement afoot — one dedicated to making sure that women get to walk around in the world without the constant inconvenience and injustice of street harassment. She not only documents the prevalence of gender-based street harassment — an unprecendented effort — but points the way towards liberation."

Bernice Resnick Sandler

"When I started reading, I remembered a few times I had been harassed on the street, but then other incidents came flooding back. I had almost forgotten the acute discomfort ranging from annoyance to fear and I still try to avoid situations where this might happen. . . . If you're a woman, of if you have women in your life as well as young girls, this is a 'must read' book."
