A lot of women know what it’s like to be harassed on the street, but it may surprise you to find out how young it often starts.
The woman featured in a YouTube video being catcalled in New York City is now receiving rape threats online, according to the organization that posted the clip.
Council Speaker Christine Quinn and Council Member Julissa Ferreras have reportedly set aside $20,000 to develop technology which would allow women to report catcalling cases and upload pictures from their smartphones of men engaged in the act.
For years women and young girls have put up with cat calls, lewd comments and much worse on the streets. Now they’re fighting back stronger than ever.
