  2. From November 14 to 25, the KIP Project on Gender and Sexuality launched its online campaign called #NotYourAshta, encouraging the public to share their messages against street harassment. The campaign culminated at the start of the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence.
  3. The campaign was launched to get the conversation started about issues of discrimination and sexual harassment, the theme of the KIP Project's upcoming conference on March 31 and April 1, 2017. After KIP held 5 private roundtables to understand the research gaps within the landscape of gender and sexuality issues in Lebanon, the dialogue converged around issues of discrimination and sexual harassment.
  4. On November 25, our #NotYourAshta campaign to speak out against street harassment concluded after gathering a range of empowering messages. The campaign is the first of our activities building up to our upcoming conference on March 31st and April 1, 2017 around discrimination and sexual harassment. 
The conference theme is the outcome of 5 roundtables discussions with multiple stakeholders around gender and sexuality as related to education, economic opportunity and empowerment, health and well-being, politics, and legal and civil rights. #KIP2017 #letstalk

You are no ones ashta. You are you.
Your body is not public space. Your privacy is not public space. No one has the right to trespass on your space, whether by force, blackmail or emotional manipulation. A compliment is a compliment, not a carte blanche into your territory. Good intentions are not a carte blanche into your space. Any action against your wishes are a complete lack of respect to your being and entity.
Some people might be very sensitive to this subject, others are more used to it. But when you feel the prickling feeling at the back of your neck, you know that some boundary has been crossed.
If it's unwanted, it's harassment. And ladies... if they have neither the IQ nor ethical standing to understand that... then fight back. If we fight back, we may lose. If we don't, we have already lost.
