From Catcalling To Sex Trafficking, My Sister Is There

Laughing

Catcalling happens to almost every girl at one time or another, and there’s no other way to describe how it feels other than belittling.

Living in downtown Phoenix, catcalling is something I hear of often and have dealt with occasionally, and unfortunately it’s often written off as “no big deal.”

“So what he yelled ‘hey baby’ randomly? Just ignore it! Who cares if he gives you a swift up-down stare and whistles? You were in gym clothes, what did you expect?”

I mean, he’s practically complimenting you, right?

Wrong.

I hope one day catcallers will understand how their aggressive eye-balling makes me feel like a piece of meat.

I hope one day they will understand the struggle young women experience (most of the time unknowingly) trying to differentiate when a man is flirting and when they are hunting.

And I know the word hunting sounds so intense and animalistic – but please understand its context is correct.

Walking through the Circle K on Seventh Avenue and McDowell Road on any given night is nothing short of a jungle – stare after stare, comment and kissy face – I have at times left feeling like a hyena’s prey.

Most of all, I hope they understand how it makes me feel devoid of my humanity.

I can write about it, and I can voice my opinion on the topic, but I’m one person in a very large and highly populated world… Which brings me to My Sister.

My Sister is a beauty and apparel brand that promotes gender equality.

It is the company’s belief that by starting with one of the world’s greatest social injustices, sex trafficking, we can one day attain complete equality between men and women.

I love their mission, and I love how they combine fashion and social issues. (Get my outfit here!)

    Read Everyday Sexism and check them out on twitter: @Everydaysexism catcalling is plain and simply a form of objectification of women which is dangerous. “I object I am not an Object”
