StreetHarassment: I am so tired…

I am so tired of getting catcalled on and around state street. I live in the downtown area, and to get anywhere (campus. grocery store, etc.) I have to walk down or across state. Literally every time I go out I get harassed by men who hang out on the corners. The worst seems to be the state/w. gilman intersection. I also stopped walking to James Madison park any time in the evenings because guys around the basketball court would yell at me. I’m 18, and moved to Madison to go to school here. I had no idea this was going to be such an issue. I stopped wearing heels because a friend told me it would help. I should not have to change my style because of these men! It’s to the point where I put off doing everyday things because I’m nervous about being harassed.
