The non-profit clothing company Feminist Apparel posted 50 signs around New York City today designating parts of the city “No Catcall Zones.” Here’s one of the signs:
Underneath, you’ll notice it says, “End Street Harassment.” This seems like a pretty creative way to try and combat the ongoing issue women face from men hitting on them and acting inappropriate when they’re simply walking down the street.
Also, it’s fairly pathetic that someone has to post a sign so men know to behave themselves. Why do you even want to be the guy screaming at women on the street about their appearance? Ever heard of being a gentleman? How does acting like a buffoon make a woman want to sleep with you?
In case you need a refresher, take a look at our flowchart detailing when it is and isn’t (mostly isn’t) appropriate to catcall a woman.
