Street talk

French-speaking men are quite verbal in expressing their attraction to a woman, unfortunately this often turns nasty in big cities like Paris or Brussels.
In 2012 Sofie Peeters decided to walk around Brussels with a hidden camera to record the harassment she was she was experiencing on a daily basis. The result was the film Femme de La Rue, which shocked those who had no idea of the sexism women are often subjected to.

In France, Anaïs Bourdet realised that what she was going through in the streets of Marseille was very similar. She created a blog where she started listing the countless flirt lines and insults addressed to her on a daily basis. She kept the blog open to give other women the opportunity to speak out and add to the list. The result is a collection of lines ranging from clumsy attempts at seduction to outrageous sexist insults.
