Hidden Camera Records More than 100 Catcalls Aimed at New York Woman
A New York City woman has exposed what she says happens to her every day.
— -- Aided by a hidden camera, a New York City woman has exposed what she says happens to her every day on the city’s streets.
Shoshanna Roberts says she was catcalled over 100 times while being filmed over the course of 10 hours.
“It was all types people,” Roberts told ABC News. “All colors, shapes, sizes [and] ages.”
Roberts filmed her first-hand view for Hollaback!, a non-profit organization that raises awareness about street harassment.
The recording of Roberts, an actress, is now being used by the organization as a PSA titled, "10 Hours of Walking in NYC as a Woman."
“I wanted to give it to guys who would maybe consider whistling at a girl,” said Rob Bliss, the owner of his own creative firm who reached out to Hollaback! with the idea of creating the PSA.
“To see things from the other side and to really feel for the first time, going through this every day, I feel kind of sick,” said Bliss, who captured the catcalling with a GoPro camera hidden on his back while he walked in front of Roberts.
Viewers of the PSA have responded with comments online like, “No woman should ever have to experience this,” and, “All you men should be ashamed of yourself.”
The woman at the center of the catcalls says it is time for change.
“It is not acceptable,” Roberts said. “Enough is enough.”
