Woman Instagrams her catcallers to prove an important point

Anyone who’s experienced catcalling knows how uncomfortable the experience can be — but one woman has found a way to bring more attention to it. 

Last month, Noa Jansma, a 20 year old from Amsterdam, ran a social experiment where she takes selfies with her catcallers and exposes them on an Instagram account she created, @dearcatcallers.

Jansma explained in her first post how doing this empowers her, “By making the selfie, both the objectifier and the object are assembled in one composition. Myself, as the object standing in front of the catcallers represents the reversed power which is caused by this project.”

The fact that these men were totally willing to pose for selfies shows just how appropriate they believe their behavior is.

She captioned the photos with the inappropriate things these guys would say to her to get her attention, such as, “*honks at me 3 times with his scooter, approaches from behind and cuts off my way* ‘God bless, When I see you, all I get is wild thoughts, wild, Wild Thoughts!! Darling…'”

Jansma began this project in late August and is now planning to pass on the Instagram account to other girls so they can share their catcalling experiences and showcase what she calls “a global phenomenon.”
