In hopes to demonstrate the absolute awfulness that is catcalling, one woman recently took to the streets of Manhattan with a hidden camera to show just how humiliating, and downright horrifying, it can be to be just that–a woman.
“God bless you mami.”
“Someone’s acknowledging you for being beautiful. You should say thank you more.“
These are just some of the 108 disgusting remarks that were directed towards Shoshana Roberts of the group Hollaback!, a nonprofit working towards shedding light on street harassment, as she silently walked about in no less than a T-shirt and jeans.
One man even attempts to grab her attention by walking alongside her for four straight minutes.
The powerful recording calls out catcalling for exactly what it is: pervasive, overwhelmingly tolerated, and constant. Someone please show this to Doree Lewak.
