Selfies with Street Harassers aka Catcallers
An Instagram account called @dearcatcallers saw the light a month ago when Noa Jansma, a 20-yearold student from Amsterdam, set out on the project to create awareness about just how often women are harassed when going about their daily lives and decided to document how often women face sexual harassment on the streets taking selfless with her catcallers. The project is also meant to highlight that catcalling can happen anytime, anywhere, and to anyone. In some of the captions of the photos, Jansma describes what the men said to her in the street. "After following me for straight 10 minutes 'sexy girl where you goin?? Can I come with you ?'" she captioned one photo. At the end of her experiment, she wrote that even though her project is over, catcalling is still persistent. In fact, she plans to turn the account through the hashtag #dearcatcallers over to women around the world as this a global phenomenon and this art project is not only about her. Next time you hear someone call you sexy in the streets, or make kissing noises, don’t get mad and react—just take a selfie!
