In fact, street harassment actually makes most women angry. A separate survey conducted by the nonprofit Hollaback! found that the overwhelming majority of women felt angry (85%), annoyed (78%), nervous (80%) and disgusted (72%) by this supposedly complimentary treatment. This treatment is dehumanizing and affirms an attitude that men are entitled to publicly evaluate women's bodies.

I am curious what precisely constitutes street harassment (though I am sure it depends on the feelings of the individual, male or female). However, is saying, "I like your shirt," or something of the like considered harassment? It is a comment on their appearance, but does not seem threatening or to come from a place of bad intentions. Again, granted, any of these situations are a matter of personal opinion considering that no category received 100%.
