The video below is going beyond viral and with good reason.  It clearly illustrates the phenomenon known as street harassment as a young woman responds to constant catcalls and even one bold individual who stays in step with her for over three minutes.

If you watch, you can clearly see what many women go through every day…several times a day.

But if you want to do something about it, the group behind the video is challenging you to put your money where your mouth is.  So, JET’s “Get It Started” feature today is Hollaback, an organization aiming to raise awareness of, and stop, street harassment.

We encourage you to do your own research before parting with a penny but if you do and you’re down with the cause, here’s where to DONATE.
