Why Do Men Catcall?

This American Life

Here is a link to an episode of “This American Life” I heard recently that explores the phenomenon of guys catcalling women.  If you’ve ever wondered why some dudes whistle, shout at or even grab women they don’t know, give it a listen.  It’s both fascinating and a little disturbing especially in the context of the recent #metoo movement.
