Project Unspoken

This video, from Project Unspoken at Emory University, asks men and women what they do to avoid sexual assault and harassment.  While the interviewed men don't have much to say, the women in this video list how they change their behavior to protect themselves from harassment and gender-based violence.  I can't say that I'm surprised by the responses (or the "I haven't really had to think about that" from the men) but, as Feministing points out, this does show differences in how men and women experience public space.

This sums it up well: "It should be a right to walk down the street and be safe."

UPDATE: The folks at Project Unspoken reached out to me to share their follow-up video.  You can view it on their Youtube channel.
