The City of Pryor Creek, Oklahoma recently became the first city in the state to approve a Complete Streets ordinance with the unanimous approval of Ordinance No. 2016-01.
Catcalling, leering, whistling, persistently asking for a woman’s name as she walks down the street – these are all forms of street harassment. Street harassment happens every day. When people experience street harassment, they often shrug it off, unsure of how to respond and not wanting to make a big deal out of it. But street harassment is a form of harassment and can affect people’s comfort, stress, and behavior, whether they are conscious of it or not.
