Advocates talk about efforts to prevent street harassment in NYC.
It’s a scene we’ve seen countless times in the movies and on television. A woman is walking down the street and is catcalled by a group of men working on a nearby construction site. It’s typically portrayed as a laughing matter, but that kind of behavior is rooted in a much more serious issue.
On this week's Cityscape, we’re taking a close look at the issue of street harassment.
Our panelists include:
- Debjani Roy, Deputy Director of Hollaback
- Brittany Braithwaite, Community Organizer of Girls For Gender Equity
- Joe Samalin, blogger for Stop Street Harassment
