Hollaback! Des Moines interviewed one of our favourite Haligonians, cartoonist Kate Leth!

You should click through and read the whole thing, but here’s an excerpt:

Street harassment is a pain, and the reactions to it can be, as well. I remember walking to work one morning (at 9:45am) and having a car pull up beside me and both guys inside gesture for me to take off my headphones. I did, and they proceeded to catcall me and ask me to come for a ride. When I angrily put my headphones back on and started to walk away, they both swore at me and laughed. Later, I told a male friend about it, and he pulled the old “I’d be so flattered if a woman did that to me!” routine. It’s good to talk about why that’s not okay.

Go on and read the whole interview. Kate’s “signature Hollaback” is not to be missed, and is being filed as one of our favourite responses ever.
