#YouOKSis?: Ending Street Harassment

The frustrating stories in this video (including the one involving a woman walking her baby in a stroller, which you can hear at the 2:15 mark) are familiar to many of us women. It has nothing to do with how we look or what we wear or where we live. Ten years ago, I didn't know what it was called. I just knew that I felt uncomfortable walking past men on the street and that no matter how many times I rolled my eyes, ignored it, or furiously responded, it wouldn't stop. Now, thanks to women like the ones featured in this video, I know that this sexist behavior has a name. And that my sisters have my back.

And just to preemptively throw it out there ... the message in this video is *not* directed at all men. Hear it clarified, too, around 1:17.
