What if street harassment was a crime? In her multidisciplinary show, writer-performer Leah King examines the distinctly New York experience of the "holla" through four Brooklyn women contemplating a new anti-harassment law. A shy bike mechanic worries that the law will sabotage her ability to meet women; an open mic host and indie rocker explores sexuality in her music career; a poetic 50-something yoga teacher wonders if the days of “hollers” may be behind her; and a sex-blogging burlesque performer dishes on the law during her online talk show. King asks the audience: how do YOU holla?

After the most recent ‘Window Sex Project’ performance at Barnard College’s Center for Research on Women, creators, participants, and allies engaged the audience in a useful discussion on combating street harassment. We were joined by  Professor L’Heureux “Dumi” Lewis-McCoy Assistant Professor of Sociology and Black Studies at CUNY, who spoke about educating young men on the issues of harassment, sexual assault, and community activism.
