    Default NYC Street harassment: woman catcalled 100 times in 10 hours




    • The ongoing [Only registered and activated users can see links. ][Only registered and activated users can see links. ] has reached a fever pitch in recent months, as more and more women speak out publicly against those who catcall, harass, grope, assault and stalk them in city spaces.

      Leading the charge since 2011 has been [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], a non-profit organization dedicated to ending street harassment by empowering women to document, map and share photos of those who harass them, using their mobile phones.

      With chapters in more than 79 cities worldwide (including Toronto,[Only registered and activated users can see links. ], Montreal, Ottawa, Halifax and [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]), the organization has solicited thousands of stories from people who've experienced what, for many women, is a daily occurrence.

      Yet nothing quite gets the point across like actual footage of street harassment taking place.

      The video released by Hollaback yesterday, shows the actual extent of the harassment some young women face.

      This shocking two-minute hidden camera clip, cut down from a full 10 hours of walking through New York City, shows one actress being repeatedly harassed on the street over the course of a single day:

    I don't think its all harassment, some are saying have a lovely day.

    The guy that walked next to her for five minutes must have been pretty scary. I reckon he wanted everybody to think it was his girlfriend.

    Most of it was harassment.. but like satzzz says "hello good morning" is hardly harassment. If it was then I am due to be jailed for the constant harassment people get from me on my walk to work every morning.

    Its utter shite in my opinion.

    Firstly the video doesnt show 100 examples of catcalling, but you can bet they didn't edit out the worst ones so this is the worst of the bunch and the majority of them while may have sexual undertones, are perfectly harmless and could be perceived either way.

    Second, as youtube commenters have said, they seem to have cherry picked the worst streets to walk down, most of which seem to be predominantly black communities.

    Third, the fact that she isn't speaking encourages many of the catcallers as they take her ignorance as being unusual or rude.

    The feminist bullshit that surrounds this video is amazing, they seem to regard any sort of communication towards a female by a male as attempted rape, or in some way offensive or predatory, well they can fuck off in my opinion.
    I see a 'fit bird' and as a married man I have no shame in saying I want to be friendly to her, it doesn't mean for a second I'm gonna rape her or even attempt to build a relationship with her. Sometimes its just fucking nice to say hello to a stranger and they say hello back, not storm past you like you have just pissed on their chips.

    Bitches, you got your vote and now your doing 40 hour shifts like us poor fuckers, please, fuck off!

    Pile of shite the whole thing. Americans are known to be sickeningly polite in many cases and also complimentary. All the ones saying have a nice day, how are you whatever are not harrassment, the ones saying "Damn" or "I just saw a thousand dollars" not quite so acceptable I guess and the two guys walking along side her was going too far.

    However as Clive says, it's feministic bullshit and everything he says after it is spot on.

    I can't fucking stand feminists, particularly those with a strong tendancy towards misandry.

    If it bothers her and the feminists so much then they should just all move to london and travel only on the tube. They will get all the silence they want/deserve right there.

    In all honesty when I'm in the street with certain work colleagues and they start trying to talk to petty women with 'hello'..... I cringe!

    For me there is a time and place, if I'm walking the dog at 5am and a female young, old, pretty or fugly is walking towards me with no one else around I'll just say 'good morning' and smile as I walk past in hope that it puts her at ease so when she sees me again she she won't have any worries.

    I won't say to a pretty female on a Saturday afternoon in a shopping centre 'hello' in case she thinks I want to get into her knickers.

    I think there is defiantly a time and place for a well meaning 'hello'.

    Thanks to Rhinoz

    As a Londonder, the idea of stangers saying hello is quite alien.

    But when I was up Manchester for a while, it was fairly common.

    At first I thought the friendly Mancunians were weird and to be avoided, but after letting my defenses down and talking to a few while drunk on a night bus, I realised I actually preferred it like that.

    Habit hasn't stuck since I got back as I don't want to look like a nutter.

    Anyway, I suppose coming back to the topic, I have nothing against anyone who fights against injustice/inequalities, in fact I think it is highly admirable, but this only works with coherent arguments I can validate.

    It's always the fucking ugly ones who protest loudest too. If they were getting cat calls there'd be none of this nonsense.

    Some of them were quite inoccent, while others were out of order. Some women love the attention, others dont. The guys walking beside her tho need a talking to, as that was intimidating.

    Well... She got her 15 minutes of fame.

    This is what is posted all over social media? Why don't drone attacks on civilian children, go viral?

    I'm guessing because most of the brain dead idiots on there would only post them and start celebrating attacks/deaths of "terrorists".

    Street Harassment?! FUCK OFF.

    This has been happening for decades, if not centuries.
    The male, being the dominant of most species, will prowl for a mate. It's in our DNA! Women should be more concerned if they DON'T get catcalls.

    Agreed with the comments about the weird stalker dude walking with her though, that's just wrong.

    The madness of Political Correctness marches on.

    What a load of bollocks most of it was.
    They also must be pretty desperate over there .. I didn't even think she was all that hot.

    The guy walking with her obviously didn't get the hint but the fact that she wasn't speaking might have made him think he had a chance .. if she had just said 'fuck off you weirdo' I think he would have got the message and left her alone.
