Last week, we received this comment under Help our Holla Back Sisters out regarding technology use and reaching undeserved populations.
I love this idea but have one main concern – this sort of technology based action always excludes lower-class and technologically illiterate women. What (if anything) will be done to insure that this map doesn’t just map the harassment of middle/upper class women in NYC, but ALL women in NYC?
This is something we have thought about a lot at Holla Back DC! We are consistently thinking about ways to ensure we are reach diverse populations as we discuss ways to take our activism offline. We would love to hear your thoughts…What can we do to reach all classes of women and ensure that we don’t just reach middle/upper class individual in DC?
