    We need to get men as well as women to say "this isn't acceptable". We need to change the culture. It's a long struggle, but it needs to happen (in my opinion). Women shouldn't have to face this.
    Who thinks that what those two guys did is acceptable??

    But your argument was based on how infrequent anything truly worthy of fear happens. this video shows that once every five hours, a woman would encounter something that was alarming

    Kind of makes the fear a bit justified, no?

    Of strange people in New York city perhaps... the argument I was countering was broad and included all women and that women were being raped at such a high percentage.

    Here a woman could walk around in a bikini all day and not attract one inappropriate comment.

    yes, I'm sure there are places where the swedish volleyball team could cavort naked without anyone raising an eyebrow, but that doesn't mean street harrassment is not a problem anywhere else and that women with such fears are being unreasonable.

    Re: How Much Of This Is Truly Harassment????

    First off, a little over one minute to showcase her 10 hour experience? Okay.

    Of what we saw, there were only two instances of pushy behavior. And even then, only one could be considered any sort of harassment with that one guy following her for a few minutes.

    I would have voted "some of it," but even then there wasn't much barring two instances in the entire video.

    Anyway, some guys need to be a bit more thoughtful. But, we all knew that already.

    We don't know that. The video was shot over several days and we will never know the exact context of everything because most of the footage has been deleted. Now don't get me wrong, I am against harassment but I am not going to base it on a highly edited video casting certain types of men in a bad light when I considered alot of them in the video to be simply polite and yes some of them to be creepy and cross the line. I'm not going to get upset or fearful if some guys on the street say "damn" when I walked by however if someone does start to follow me and I feel uncomfortable I am calling the cops. I know how it is, I live in a neighborhood where guys like those in the video live and I deal with it but I am not afraid to walk around. The real harassment I've had to deal with is so far from removed from walking down a busy street during the day that it just doesn't even compare.


    How The "100 Catcalls In 10 Hours" Street Harassment Video Was Made: Gothamist

    Was the walk a straight 10 hours? It was 2 to 3 hours of filming split across several days, totaling up to 10 hours.


    Will a fuller edit be released? Since we had ten hours of footage shot at 2.7k, I was dealing with over 200GB of footage, which I quickly got rid of to allow for easier editing weeks ago, so I no longer have access to that footage.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    No because marriage isn't the problem, it's the precursor to the abuse that is the problem is domestic violence situations.
