LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — The University of Louisville is hosting an event next month aimed at combating sexual and street harassment.
The university says the “Cards Against Catcalling” event is scheduled April 6 from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. EDT in the Red Barn at the Belknap Campus. The event will be hosted by the Women 4 Women Student Board and the UofL Women’s Center.
The event is part of the national Anti-Street Harassment Week, organized by Stop Street Harassment, a nonprofit group working to end gender-based street harassment.
Hadley Hendrick, a member of Women 4 Women and chair of “Cards Against Catcalling,” says street harassment is a common problem for women, minorities and members of the LGBT community.
The event will be free and open to the public.
