Fed up with being catcalled on the street 20 year old student Noah Jansma decided to do something about it. Throughout the month of September she took a selfie with every catcaller who harassed her and captioned them with the words they each used.

“By juxtaposing the catcallers’ callous, unashamed grins with her own exhausted, painfully familiar expression, Jansma shows the world just how frequent, real, and disturbing these experiences are for women everywhere. She also gains power over them, though, by documenting their actions and putting them on display for the whole world to see. Though her own experiment has ended, she has opened the @dearcatcallers Instagram page for submissions in hopes of creating a global dialogue on the collective struggle women face” – Giadre, Bored Panda
