Letters To Our Brothers is an international campaign aimed at reclaiming the social domain of the streets and ending the ceaseless harassment of women found there, particularly in the Arab world. Women and girls are forced to endure catcalling, molestation and even sexual assault on a daily basis, simply because they are walking in the streets. Most often, these women feel helpless to defend themselves or to take appropriate action against their harassers because the educational, social, legal, and political infrastructure is lacking to bring them to justice.
Letters To Our Brothers aims at giving a voice to harassed women through our collective calling out. The Letters are actual notes written to male members of our family or our proverbial “brothers” at large, imploring them to understand the social and psychological consequences of street harassment. It involves photography and video campaigns to maximize social media exposure.
