Catcalling: It’s Not Flattering

The video above shows the harassment  women encounter on a daily basis. It was created by Hollaback! Their Mission is to end street harassment and bring awareness to the issue through their grassroots campaign. As a woman, just because I looked in your general direction is not an invitation to objectify me. This uninvited advance is not only offensive but it is threatening and makes many women feel unsafe. Yes, UNSAFE. If we piss you off or say the wrong thing, we fear being assaulted. In order to end street harassment, the first step is awareness. Please don’t contribute to this disgusting and offensive behavior and teach your children that this is not okay!
