Street Harassment and Cat Calling

February 24, 2015 Written by overshareshow - No Comments

In this weeks OverShare show I interview Shoshanna Roberts – the woman from the viral street harassment video entitled “10 hours walking in NYC as a woman”

Shoshanna talks about her personal experience with “cat calling,” as well as the context and subsequent backlash of the video. We discuss the meta issues around this type of behavior, and the impact of verbal assault on both the victim as well as society. Although many might assume that someone yelling “nice tits” could be considered a compliment, I am pretty sure if women yelled “nice balls” at you everyday, eventually it would impact your psyche.
