Street harassment is a very common thing in New York City — especially if you’re a woman.
In an effort to show what it’s like to walk around the streets of New York as a woman, Shoshana B. Roberts and her boyfriend used a hidden camera (in his backpack) to document the endless catcalls and phrases thrown at her during the 10-hour experiment.
The results are pretty unsettling.
From someone asking her to “say thank you more” to those who call her beautiful to a man who walks beside her for five minutes, the nearly two-minute video is just a sample of what Shoshana, who wore a crew neck shirt and jeans for the walk, and other women go through on a daily basis.
The video is backed by the non-profit organization Hollaback!, which seeks to end street harassment around the world.
