It’s a given: women and girls in public places are harassed by boys and men. Walking on city sidewalks, shopping at the mall, riding bikes or jogging in public parks—females hear jeers, sexual comments, and whistles. One expert says it’s such a common phenomenon that we don’t realize how deeply women’s behavior is affected by it. For today’s Dakota Digest, SDPB’s Victoria Wicks talks with activist and author Holly Kearl and with some of the women and girls affected by street harassment.
