On the Harassment of Women and Dwarves

“Don’t Look Down On Me” is Jonathan Novick’s documentary about the social travails of living with achondroplasia, or¬†dwarfism. Passersby call out disparaging names, random strangers strike up conversations to bring up predictable stereotypes, and of course the “m-word” is addressed.

“10 Hours of Walking in NYC as a Woman,” a viral video for Hollaback, documents just how much casual harassment a woman tolerates constantly in the city: a relentless texture of cultural pressure and male dominance all masquerading as “just saying hi”, again and again and again.

Don’t harass people.
