These Mexican Women Have Found an Incredible Way to Fight Back Against Cat-Callers and You’ll Never Guess How

Walking along the sidewalk can become a total catcall creep show, but women in Mexico City are fighting back. They are taking practical jokes and punk rock to the next level, giving the men who shout at them a quick scare and some uncomfortable public shame.

Las Hijas de Violencia are a Mexican cat-caller’s worst nightmare.

They’re a feminist group in Mexico City that fights back against sexual harassment. And those masks make them that much more frightening when you have the “chance” to meet them.

If they hear you on the street harassing them or other women, you will be met with a gun…full of confetti!

How many of these men do you think have pissed their pants in fear?

But that’s not all. After shooting you with confetti, they give you a personal punk rock show to bring a little public shame your way.

“We must respond,” Ana Beatriz, member of La Hijas de Violence told AJ+. “If, by us responding [to catcalls], we can encourage more women to do the same, it’s ideal.”
