Gender violence in the Spotlight

[LISTEN] Why catcalling is problematic

A 20-year-old student from Amsterdam, Noa Jansma made it her mission to take selfies with people who cat called her, posting each image on her Instagram account under the hashtag #DearCatcallers.

She shared some context for the photo and what the men did or said.

A group of South Africa women have shared some of their own experiences with Eusebius McKaiser, relaying how humiliated they feel when bystanders make inappropriate remarks or advances.

It is quite infuriating and upsetting cause at times you can't retaliate and more often than not I want to cuss them out but I am afraid of what they may do in retaliation.

It makes me feel naked, I don't have to be wearing a short skirt but I will nonetheless feel naked, violated and I feel like I should hide myself.

702 caller

It makes you feel like you are an object.

702 caller

The question was posed to men, with some saying it is in their 'nature' to cat call.

Every guy does it, it's natural.

702 caller

Women enjoy it, it's what they want.

702 caller

This woman agrees.

It's built into their DNA from an evolutionary point of view, that is just the way they are.
