Mandy Van Deven

Hey, Shorty!: A Guide to Combating Sexual Harassment and Gender-based Violence

Hey Shorty! provides a narrative account of how teen women of color in New
York City have organized over the past ten years to end gender-based violence against
girls, women, and LGBTQ folks in public spaces. At tonight’s event, co-author and
activist Mandy Van Deven will read from the book and facilitate a conversation about
street harassment, sexual harassment in schools, and strategies to increase safety.
Additionally, Van Deven hopes to promote her goal of building connections among
organizations and individuals doing anti-violence work, and encouraging everyone to
challenge harassment, violence, and the harmful assumptions that undermine their
perpetuation.
