10 minutes, three harassers

I was first verbally harassed by a man in an SUV walking east on fulton across from Marcy. He told me to “slow down, slow down” several times before I turned around and gave him the finger. I then crossed the street and went into a store. On my way back, I was harassed a … Continued

OBJECTIFIED: A new short film on street harassment

Film is a powerful way to make social change, and we’re loving this one. It shows how men and women think about, and perceive street harassment differently. The film points to it’s own conclusions, but why do you think street harassment happens? A penny for your thoughts…
