Black and white photograph of a girl being noticed as she walks down the street. Harassment in Public

The first article in the MAN-selection series addresses the harassment single women experience in public. The term public harassment might be used to describe a wide range of intrusive behaviors, thus constituting an intrusive act, which according to Vera-Gray (2016), is “an intentional breaking into or entering without consent.” It is the experience of intimidation, in a way similar to aggressive pressure and physical attacks. Gardner (1995), describes public harassment as existing within a continuum of possible events; beginning with the abrogation of stranger-civility; and ending with a potential transition into violent crime (assault, rape, and/or murder).
