Good for Hollaback an anti-harassment advocacy group – for a video that got 15 millon views! Filmmaker Rob Bliss placed a video in his backpack and accompanied one woman for 10 hours walking the streets of New York City. They counted how many times she got spoken at by complete male strangers. It was 108 times! OMG. It seems that harassment has become so common that we don’t even notice it any more! The take away: Do men really think that shouting,”Hey baby you are CUUUUTE” is a compliment?” “Do they have any idea how insulting this is and how vulnerable it makes women feel?” [fusion_builder_container hundred_percent=”yes” overflow=”visible”][fusion_builder_row][fusion_builder_column type=”1_1″ background_position=”left top” background_color=”” border_size=”” border_color=”” border_style=”solid” spacing=”yes” background_image=”” background_repeat=”no-repeat” padding=”” margin_top=”0px” margin_bottom=”0px” class=”” id=”” animation_type=”” animation_speed=”0.3″ animation_direction=”left” hide_on_mobile=”no” center_content=”no” min_height=”none”][Source: Gail Sullivan, Vancouver Sun, 30 October 14]
