The video, “10 Hours of Walking in NYC as a Woman,” shows Shoshana B. Roberts silently walking through Manhattan behind Bliss, who is filming her with a camera hidden inside a backpack. Though she does not engage with anyone, she is “complimented,” told to “smile,” and leered at by men.
“What’s up girl? How you doing?” one man says early on. “Somebody’s acknowledging you for being beautiful. You should say thank you more.”
Other men are shown following Roberts without her consent, including one who tails her for five minutes.
“Maybe the guys who see this and don’t understand may still think there’s nothing wrong with this,” Bliss told Think Progress. “But at least for the first time, they got to experience a little bit of what it’s like to go through a day of getting harassed.”
