The word “Catcall” is one that stirs up emotions in the hearts and minds of many women. It represents sexism in one term and brings to light the frustration women have at society’s drive to promote inequalities.
We’re turning catcalling on its head.
This time we’re calling out to women. We’ll be sharing personal stories, reflections, thoughts, ideas, rants, and observations that we see in the every day. Catcall is a collection of our histories; the things that make us laugh, cry, cringe; the everyday struggles we have as women; the issues we face; the things we want changed; and the musings of women living in our world today.
Join the conversation. It’s time we Catcall back.
