Catcalls, whistles, ogling females with lustful stares, following females down the street four deep in a car, and even copping a feel - men accost women on the streets daily. Why do men insist on treating women and girls as young as 10 years old with such callous disrespect? Some men react angrily with profanity and name calling when their "greetings" are met with a sneer or flatly ignored. Tonight we discuss street harassment, male sense of entitlement to get a complete stranger's time and attention, and the legal and social ramifications of street harassment. Dr. Carla Stokes Founder and CEO of Helping Our Teen Girls in Real Life Situations, Inc. (HOTGIRLS), Dr. Sulaiman Nuriddin of MenStoppingViolence.Org, Detective Kurt Scanio of the Mesa Police Association, and Lauren Taylor of DefendYourself.Org will be on the panel.
