Review for RightRides For Women's Safety Inc, Brooklyn, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

RightRides for Women's Safety is an inspirational organization, led by an inspirational woman. Their core project, RightRides, PREVENTS harassment and assault by giving women and LGBT folks safe rides home. They are also part of New Yorkers for Safe Transit, which CHANGES POLICIES to make trains and buses safer. They are partners and cofounders of Hollaback!, a movement to end street harassment that allows women and LGBT folks to RESPOND to street harassment in a bad-ass way. This three pronged approach is visionary, and I can't wait to see what they do next.

Review for Women's Media Center, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

PWV taught me to stop being scared of my own leadership, because at the end of the day, it's not about me. It's about the issue. But PWV also helped me realize that whether I like it or not, I was the defacto leader of what had gone from a little blog to an international movement. To try and avoid leading it would be to miss an incredible opportunity to make the world safer for women and girls around the world.
