In August 2014, Rob Bliss of Rob Bliss Creative reached out to Hollaback!, a non-profit dedicated to ending street harassment, to partner on a PSA highlighting the impact of street harassment. He was inspired by his girlfriend – who gets street harassed all the time – and Shoshana B. Roberts volunteered to be the subject of his PSA.

For 10 hours, Rob walked in front of Shoshana with a camera in his backpack, while she walked silently with two mics in her hands. During that time, more than 100 instances of verbal harassment took place, involving people of all backgrounds. This doesn’t include the countless winks, whistles, etc.
