Thank you, Adrienne. We move on to a young woman taking a stand against catcallers using selfies to expose sexism creating an Instagram account that has hundreds of thousands of followers. ABC's Linzie Janis is here with her story. Good morning, Linzie. Reporter: As too many women know street harassment is common. When it happens it's hard to know how to reyak.
