A Woman Wore A Hidden Camera To Show How Many Times In A Day She Gets Harassed. Argh.

Before you try to tell someone to get over it, you need to know what it's actually like. And then you need to not tell them to get over it.

A Woman Wore A Hidden Camera To Show How Many Times In A Day She Gets Harassed. Argh.

TRIGGER WARNING: At 3:17, a woman describes an assault on a subway. You really should hear what she says so you can learn how horrific this is for many women on a daily basis.

There are lots of ways you can help make people more aware of stories like theirs. You can get the Hollaback app and share your stories. You can Like Stop Street Harassment on Facebook. And you could share this and make sure more people know the truth. Totally up to you.


UPDATE: An area that this video fails to discuss at all is the much more difficult time Black and Latina women have when facing street harassment. Sadly, their voice is absent from this presentation of the issue, and as a result, some of the suggestions given (including that women yell back at men) don't reflect the experiences and insight of a lot of people who are fighting this type of harassment every day. There's a much safer way to help when you see someone being harassed. You should learn about it.

The owner of a donut store has been praised for defending a homeless man who hangs out outside of the store from an angry customer. The owner of Nomad Donuts, based in San Diego, defended the "intelligent and respectful" man after the customer implied that seeing him made them feel guilty about buying donuts.

The exchange was spotted by Reddit user beerbellybegone on Reddit, who shared screenshots on the social media site. The one-star review by the angry customer states: "A homeless guy has *lived* (morning noon and night) against the front entrance for about a year. Really makes me feel great about spending $5 on a jelly donut."
