Video: A Woman Is Videotaped While Facing Street Harassment In New York City

Written by Nigel D. / 10.29.14

In August 2014, Rob Bliss of Rob Bliss Creative reached out to Hollaback! to partner on a PSA highlighting the impact of street harassment. He was inspired by his girlfriend — who gets street harassed all the time — and Shoshana B. Roberts volunteered to be the subject of his PSA. For 10 hours, Rob walked in front of Shoshana with a camera in his backpack, while Shoshana walked silently with two mics in her hands.

What is street harassment?

Street harassment is a form of sexual harassment that takes place in public spaces. It exists on a spectrum including “catcalling” or verbal harassment, stalking, groping, public masturbation, and assault. At its core is a power dynamic that constantly reminds historically subordinated groups (women and LGBTQ folks, for example) of their vulnerability to assault in public spaces. Further, it reinforces the ubiquitous sexual objectification of these groups in everyday life. Street harassment can be sexist, racist, transphobic, homophobic, ableist, sizeist and/or classist. It is an expression of the interlocking and overlapping oppressions we face and it functions as a means to silence our voices and “keep us in our place.” At Hollaback!, we believe that what specifically counts as street harassment is determined by those who experience it. If you’ve experienced street harassment, we’ve got your back!

Would you really consider of what is going on in the video to be street harassment? I think that men that actually follow her are harassing her. But a lot of men are just telling her to smile or saying good afternoon.

Sprite Presents: LeBron James’ First Home Game

Written by Nigel D. / 10.27.14

LeBron James’ first home court game appearance won’t be in Cleveland; because it was in his hometown of Akron, Ohio on September 25th. Sprite worked with city officials to turn Patterson Park, which hadn’t been updated in more than 20 years, into a blank canvas for New York urban artist Futura to transform. Once the court was transformed, Sprite held a pickup game and basketball clinic for the community to enjoy. That’s when LeBron showed up to celebrate the new courts and his arrival back home.
