The Window Sex Project addresses and tackles the every day practice in which women are “window shopped,” that is forced to bear unsolicited verbal harassment from men while walking on the street.

 

Through community workshops and choreographed performance, The Window Sex Project gives voice to gender-based street harassment and restores agency to women by equipping them to manage harassment, celebrating their bodies and responding through public dance work.
