Watch It. Listen To The Guys. Watch It Again. Listen To The Women. Then Listen To The Women Again.
There are a lot of perspectives here, but listen for how many times the women say they felt uncomfortable, intimidated, or unsafe because of guys approaching them on the street.
What needs to happen if street harassment makes women feel like this...
...but men think like this?
Thanks, last dude. It IS a little intimidating.
And if it's happening towomen, shouldn't what women actually experience matter a little bit more than what men intend? At a certain point, intentions don't matter. The act of disrupting women on the street (from telling women to smile all the way to hip-thrusts and groping) is unwelcome and intimidating.
Men harassing women on the street is just not acceptable.
