Woman walks the streets of New York City, enduring violating gestures and lewd remarks.
One unidentified man walks alongside the woman and says, “You don’t speak?” And continues with, “If I give you my number would you talk to me?”
Stop Street Harassment released a study earlier this year. The report shows 65% of women in the United States experience this type of abuse.
Anti-street harassment group Hollaback took action creating a video showing a young woman taking a walk throughout the streets of Manhattan, wearing jeans and a t-shirt.
Over one-hundred gestures of verbal abuse took place within 10-hours involving a diversity of race backgrounds.
