Lady walks for 10 hours in NYC receives hundreds of rape threats

SHARE:

This 2-minute viral video is to address the New Yorkers and people across the globe that this kind of harassment should not be tolerated.

Shoshana B. Roberts, actress, video recorded a 10-hour walk in New York City only to receive unlimited catcalls from men to detail the harassment women getting from their opposite sex.

This experiment was commissioned by an advocacy group called Hollaback partnered with Rob Bliss who owns the marketing agency that produces viral videos.

Roberts who is also known for being a black belter in Tae Kwon Do received a total of 108 casting calls. Most of the guys went straight into having a conversation with her by asking some questions as if they knew her. Some noticed her appearance and the clothes she wears.

In the report made by The Guardian, there was a man walked alongside her without saying anything for five minutes.

And another one tailed her volunteering to give his number to her.

This is a 2-minute experimental clip to openly see the street harassment is not okay with a main goal that we should refuse to tolerate this kind of act.
"Ten hours of silent walking through all areas of Manhattan, wearing jeans and a crewneck t-shirt."



To break the ice, BuzzFeed also created a video that shows "What if women catcalled men".
