New Submission

New Submission

This was my first experience of catcalling and general harassment.A group of boys around my age (teenage) shouted something from their bikes. I couldn’t here most of it but I did pick up the word “condom.” It makes me mad that society is teaching their children to behave like this. In broad daylight, around 4pm … Continued

New Submission

I was already in a bad mood from a catcall 5 minutes previous to this one. I was walking on the pavement beside some cars stopped at the traffic light, when I noticed two young ‘lads’ in an Audi acting all cool and staring at women. At that point I decided to get my phone … Continued

New submission from student

New submission from Jules

My partner (also a woman) and I were walking along Sauchiehall around 8.30pm, after an afternoon at Pride Glasgow. 3 men wearing smart suits saw us and crossed the street towards us making noises (“woooohhhh”) and then stopped us in our tracks by surrounding us and standing in front of us. One asked, “what’s that … Continued
