Most women, no matter where they’re from, are intimately familiar with the concept of catcalling – unwanted sexual advances from strangers on the street.

Men often feel that they are doing nothing wrong when they shout obscenities or profanity-laced “compliments” at unsuspecting women going about their day, but there has been a growing movement to change that perception.

What follows is a good, old-fashioned lesson in swift, motherly justice.
