Street Harassment is a global phenomenon that is largely overlooked, and even considered acceptable despite there being laws against it in many places, including Pakistan. Street harassment includes making sexually explicit comments, ogling, whistling, following and groping. In the making of these videos, we found that many Pakistani women, especially from the lower-middle classes began wearing burqas because they found the additional garment enabling in many ways. However, they find that the problem of street harassment has worsened, and even in burqas, they are harassed as they wait for buses, rickshas, taxis, or walk down the street. We found that this intimidation was experienced by women across class, age, religion and ethnicity.
