As a brand that values and supports the worth of women, L’Oréal Paris is going beyond beauty to help empower people who deal with the widespread issue of street harassment. In honor of International Women’s Day, L’Oréal Paris has partnered with global nonprofit Hollaback! to spread awareness on how to stand up to street harassment while staying safe.
If you’ve ever been harassed in public, then you understand the feelings that can come along with it: fear, anxiety, embarrassment, even sometimes helplessness. A widespread issue, street harassment can come in many forms, including but not limited to suggestive comments, sexually explicit touch and inappropriate gestures. And it might be more common than you think.
