Catcalling – unwarranted “compliments” and advances, usually in the street, and usually towards women – is a subject that has been garnering media attention in the last couple of years.
Women are often met with disbelief when they say they are regularly catcalled in the streets, and now some are filming their experiences to prove the extent of the problem. “10 Hours of Walking in NYC as a Woman” is one of the most well-known examples.
Cosmopolitan seems to have joined the effort with a video that shows men reacting to hidden camera footage of their girlfriends walking down the street alone. Each of the three women in the video has advances thrown at them, and some are blatantly sexual in nature.
The boyfriend’s reactions range from anger, to shock, to nervous laughter – there is even a swear or two thrown in.
