I love the fact that this 20-year-old lady is using social media to call out the people who disrespect her with catcalls.
How does she do it? She takes selfies with them and shames them on social media.
Noa Jansma explains her method this way: “This Instagram has the aim to create awareness about the objectification of women in daily life. Since many people still don’t know how often and in whatever context ‘catcalling’ happens, I’ll be showing my catcallers within the period of one month.”
I think this is a great way for women to flip the script on these pigs. She says, “both the objectification and the object are assembled in one composition. Myself, as the object, standing in front of the catcallers represents the reversed power ratio which is caused by this project.”
Keep in mind that street harassment is illegal in many places and this could be a great tool to call out those who don’t follow the law, or the rules of common decency. More about Noa here.
