(Raw Story) A new video by filmmaker Rob Bliss and the advocacy group Hollaback shows the kind of street harassment often hurled at women in New York City, Mashable reported. The video, “10 Hours of Walking in NYC as a Woman,” shows Shoshana B. Roberts silently walking through Manhattan behind Bliss, who is filming her with a camera hidden inside a backpack. Though she does not engage with anyone, she is “complimented,” told to “smile,” and leered at by men. -- Video now viewed over 5 million times at YouTube. http://youtu.be/b1XGPvbWn0A
