The Mission district of San Francisco is a fantastic neighborhood, but one rife with cat calling. What’s a person to do with all these gratuitous cat calls?
Tweet about it! That is, at least, what poet Leora Silverman Fridman and I decided to do: to document all the cat calls we receive in the Mission district of San Francisco, our neighborhood.
Mission Catcalls — written anonymously under the pseudonym “women in the mission” — aims to provide a voice to and outlet for the verbal harassment that woman stomach in our neighborhood. Catcalls ranged from what we came to call standard (“Hi Beautiful Lady”) to the utterly strange (“hey babe, I like kombucha too”).
