A BBC reporter’s point was made for her when she had sexual obscenities shouted at her during a field report about street harassment.
Sarah Teale was filming a segment about harassment faced by women in public areas when a male passerby hurled a sexually explicit remark at her. Teale was sitting outside the Nottingham Women’s Center, which was hosting a summit about street harassment, when the incident took place, according to BBC News.
In the clip posted to BBC Radio Nottingham’s Facebook page, Teale reports, “An online study found a shocking 95 percent of people said they had been harassed, either jeered at or had obscenities shouted at them in the street, and a large proportion said they had been groped or grabbed inappropriately in public.”
Almost as soon as she finishes speaking, you can hear a male voice make a comment that is bleeped out. The reporter gestures at the offender and says, “Yeah, like that.”
“It’s not banter, it’s not funny and no one should have to put up with it,” Teale told BBC News.
