Abstract:

Sexual harassment and bullying are happening in schools all the time. It's not unusual for a girl to hear "Hey, Shorty!" as she walks down the hall or comes into the schoolyard, followed by a sexual innuendo, insult, come-on, or assault. Girls for Gender Equity (GGE), a nonprofit organization based in New York City, has developed a model for teens to teach one another about sexual harassment, what it is and how to prevent it. Here is the story of GGE and the students who have been empowered by these initiatives. Hey, Shorty! is a guide for youth organizers, students, parents, teachers, and allies committed to building awareness and creating change in any community.

Based in Brooklyn, GGE is an intergenerational grassroots organization committed to the physical, psychological, social, and economic development of girls and women. Through education, organizing, and physical fitness, GGE encourages communities to remove barriers and create opportunities for girls and women to live self-determined lives. --Book Jacket.
