Woman who documented sexual harassment receives rape threats

For starters, the concept of the video was well done, however to then say how she was 'harassed' seems like a stretch, especially since all of the comments made are more complimentary then derogatory or harassing.  Now to see she is receiving rape threats seems to me like it was inevitable if you are going to provoke the male species.   I suggest she wear loose fitting clothing, make herself look 'less attractive' and see what the results would be.  Heck, throw in the religious angle and see what happens if you wore a full hijab and walked the same streets. I'll bet the remarks would be quite different. 

A good lesson video but with the pretty typical outcome I am afraid.
