Dads came face-to-face with their daughters being catcalled in a new hidden-camera experiment.
Condé Nast Entertainment's The Scene used a hidden camera to record three women walking through the streets of New York City, south of 34th Street, and dealing with catcalling along the way. The three then sat down with their respective fathers to view the footage, which showed a range of street harassment from quick comments to being followed.
"That's upsetting me now, the way he talks," says one father. "There was no shame coming on like this, on the street, without even knowing the young lady."
"Have some f**king respect," replies another. "Have some respect."
"How often does that happen?" he asks his daughter.
The idea behind the experiment was to get a more personal look at a pervasive problem.
“We wanted to explore the world of catcalling, but with a more serious and personal side," Michael Klein, EVP of Programming and Content Strategy, Digital Channels at Condé Nast Entertainment, told The Huffington Post in an email Tuesday. "How do fathers feel about their daughters being talked to on the street? Our video goes deeper than what’s already been looked at. The response has been amazing with hundreds of thousands of people joining the conversation - watching and sharing.”
