A dutch student has taken a selfie with every catcaller she passes in a bid to raise awareness on objectifying women.
20-year-old Noa Jansma, a student from Amsterdam, takes selfies with every man who catcalls her for her month-long project where she’s documented every incident.
The Instagram account, Dear Catcallers, has now amassed over 150,000 followers in just a month and with 30 posts.
Explaining her project, Jansma writes that being catcalled is “not a compliment. This Instagram has the aim to create awareness about the objectification of women in daily life,” she wrote at the end of August.
“Since many people still don’t know how often and in whatever context ‘catcalling’ happens, I’ll be showing my catcallers within the period of one month.”
In a selfie, “both the objectification and the object are assembled in one composition. Myself, as the object, standing in front of the catcallers represents the reversed power ratio which is caused by this project.”
