“I was hoping people will see it and beware of something that they didn’t know was going on , I mean the frequency is something alarming. people may know that this is happening but not to this degree” –  said Shoshana Roberts, the Actress on the video.
According to Hollaback! On August 2014, Rob Bliss of Rob Bliss Creative reached out to Hollaback! to partner on a Public Service Announcement highlighting the impact of street harassment because he was inspired by his girlfriend — who gets street harassed all the time — and Shoshana B. Roberts volunteered to be the subject of this Public Serivce Announcement. For 10 hours, Rob Bliss walked in front of Shoshana with a camera in his backpack, while Shoshana walked silently with two mics in her hands.
Emily May  Executive Director, Hollaback said “We want this video to show people who are harassed know that they are not alone and we have your back. for the people who are doing the harassment to show the impact this has on us”
