‘I GET WOLF WHISTLED LIKE A DOG’
“Five seconds away from here, on my way in, I get wolf whistled like a dog. But I would have brushed that off as a part of daily life,” says 19-year-old Siam from South East England.
“Sometimes you can put yourself in more danger if you do retaliate against some guy. You want to, every part of you wants to say something, or fight back or something, but you know that you’re safer if you just do the polite smile and walk on.”
‘IT STOPPED ME FROM GOING RUNNING’
“I don’t go running without a partner now.” says Morgan, 18, from Lincolnshire.
“I used to go, ‘Well it’s hot! Crop top, and shorts, that’ll do me, go for a run.’ But I used to get so many beeps and so many comments that I thought, ‘Ok, next time I’ll buy a long sleeve top.’"
"I still got comments and I thought ‘Right, I can’t do this anymore’. It stopped me from going running, ‘cos I didn’t feel safe.”
