Latin America fights back sexism: no more street harassment

The recent movement against the increasing street harassment that we see in all Latin America has resulted in new laws in Mexico, Costa Rica and Peru, and movements towards that in Argentina. Check out this story made by AFP.

Women in Brazil have spoken up about harassment like never before. A recent story in the main Sunday news TV show had a man harassing a girl in a park, when the cameras got the reaction of the population around.

More and more, the problem of street harassment and catcalls are turning from a “normal, acceptable” behavior of men to an inadequate act of abuse and violence.

Thanks to all campaigns done in Chile, Argentina, Paraguay, Peru, Colombia and Brazil, the mentality of that society has been changing.
