Blank Noise Blogathon in March

of India's Blank Noise Project says :


Last March 8 (Women's Day), we had a blog-a-thon that asked
you to blog
stories of street sexual harassment. It began with an
announcement on this
blog that was picked up by bloggers across
India, and soon in different
parts of the world. We shared stories we
had never shared before, sometimes
stories we thought we had long
forgotten, stories that we had often wanted
to bury. We read each other,
we linked to each other and we linked back to
the Blank Noise Project
blog. We were touched by each other's stories, moved
by them, and,
we like to imagine, drew strength and sustenance from the
cross-cultural chain of shared experiences.
It's this strength that we're
asking you to share experiences of, on March
8th, 2007.
The baton is handed over right here, right now!

Announce this on
your blog and on the morning of March 8th, 2007,
share with us a story (or
two, or five or...) of fighting back?!
When did you flip a situation so you could resist, when did you give
back as
hard as you got? When and how did you choose to confront?
When did you
become an Action Hero? Action heroes have formed
the theme of the last few Blank Noise
interventions and it's this spirit
we ask you to share and celebrate on
March 8, 2007!

So announce the Blog-a-thon, and on March 8, share your action story!

If you are a male blogger and wondering how you fit in, tell us about an
Action Hero you know!
