Made Me Look

In case anybody still hasn't gotten that street harassment is about power, here's a little story from my morning:

I was walking to my car before work and had chosen to walk in the street to avoid getting my heels stuck in the cobblestone sidewalk. I was looking down into my bag and all of a sudden I hear a short, high-pitched whistle. Thinking it could perhaps be someone telling me to get out of the street, I look up and in the direction of the whistle. Sure enough, a young man smiles at me from the sidewalk. Did he really need to get a look at my face that badly? No. Did he know that he has the power to walk all around this city and get others to do what he wants? Yes.
