Video: Don't Show It To The Khaps

A video "10 Hours of Walking in NYC as a Woman" posted by Street HarassmentVideo has notched up over 10.5 million views in less than two days of being posted on YouTube.

The video, which starts with a woman putting on a hidden camera, says "10 hours of silent walking through all areas of Manhattan wearing jeans and a crewnecked t-shirt", the woman experienced more than 100 instances of verbal street harassment from people from varied backgrounds, not counting the winks and whistles.

Recently, in Haryana, after a Chief Minister of the BJP with an RSS background took over, the Hindu Mahasabha had passed a diktat asking girls not to wear jeans or to use cell phones, saying these led to rapes and sexual harassment.

Hanna Rosin in the Slate: The Problem With That Cat-Calling Video:

As Roxane Gay tweeted, “The racial politics of the video are fucked up. Like, she didn’t walk through any white neighborhoods?”

The video is a collaboration between Hollaback, an anti-street harassment organization, and the marketing agency Rob Bliss Creative. At the end they claim the woman experienced 100-plus incidents of harassment “involving people of all backgrounds.” Since that obviously doesn’t show up in the video, Bliss addressed it in a post. He wrote, “We got a fair amount of white guys, but for whatever reason, a lot of what they said was in passing, or off camera,” or was ruined by a siren or other noise. The final product, he writes, “is not a perfect representation of everything that happened.” That may be true but if you find yourself editing out all the catcalling white guys, maybe you should try another take.
