The Establishment: Mexican Women Take To Twitter And The Streets To Protest Gender Violence

I have my first piece in The Establishment, about the movement in Mexico to end gender violence. I interviewed women who shared their stories of sexual harrassment and abuse through the Twitter hashtag #miprimeracoso and report on the April 24th march in Mexico City to end gender violence.

“On the afternoon of Saturday, April 23, a Colombian columnist and her Mexican colleague put out the call on Twitter for women to post about their first time being sexually harassed. The hashtag, #miprimeracoso, or #myfirstharassment, took off.”

Read the full piece here.
