Street Harassment in the Daytime

I walking home from work in the middle of the afternoon, and a man made a very obnoxious high pitched howl. Somehow, he thought screaming at a woman would make him feel more masculine.

I could share so many stories about how I am approached in classes or on the street when I just want to be left alone. One of my guy friends doesn’t think it’s a big deal. He’ll always say that … Continued
