On November 22, a group of middle and senior school Linden students visited Royal St. George's College (RSGC) to join a discussion on street harassment. This discussion began a few weeks ago in the RSGC Grade 8 social justice class, and emerged from ongoing conversations about masculinity and street harassment. Linden girls were invited by RSGC because they recognized the need to include the voices of those most affected by this topic: girls and women. At Linden, we recognize that we live in a society that has allowed the creation of a culture that permits and even encourages street harassment, particularly of women and girls.
We invited all Linden students in Grades 8-12 to participate in a preliminary discussion on this topic on Wednesday, November 16, which resulted in the creation of a following video which was then used to kick off the panel discussion at RSGC. Read the full story here.
