“My goal with this video was to shine a light on the clandestine battles women are forced to engage in, specifically in public spaces. While many of our public spaces are designed to facilitate and improve our lives, too often they allow for a double standard in which all woman must negotiate uncomfortable, unfair, hostile, or dangerous situations, while men either as perpetrators or as bystanders get the choice to opt-in or opt-out.

I asked some of the women in my life to share real stories from their lives and I took those accounts and translated them into vignettes, each one designed to highlight something specific about this inequity. My hope is that all men, myself included (at :43 seconds) will learn to challenge each other to be better."
