Dads React To Their Daughters Being Catcalled And It's Pretty Heartbreaking

by Laurence-Emmanuelle Bédard Published on August 19, 2015

It's imperative that women feel safe on the streets, yet some men find it acceptable to call out to them, try to get their attention or even follow them around. Although everyone knows this is an issue that happens to women every day, these Dads seeing it happen to their own daughters gives them a whole new perspective on the problem.

The Scene followed three women around New York City and captured every man who called out to them and approached them. The daughters then sat down with their dads and showed them the footage, leaving their dear old dads pretty much horrified at what they'd just witnessed.

Megan's father Joe couldn't believe that catcalling is a common occurance, asking Megan: “That just happens and you keep on strolling? How often does this happen?” He also became seriously riled up when a man said: "look at that sh*t, damn", saying: "have some f*cking respect. Like, have some respect."

Daniella's father Muir was particularly annoyed when a man followed her for about three minutes, saying: "[If I was present] I think there would be a fist fight. Our daughters and wives and mothers are to be treated with respect."
