Stand up against catcalling louts

THE EDITOR, Sir:

I do agree with the commentary by Shawna Kay Williams-Pinnock on July 2, 2019, in The Gleaner on the issue of Jamaican men being disrespectful.

I have wondered about the morals of women who smile when rude comments are directed at them. I do not appreciate the attitudes of my colleagues who treat women like they are meat.

IGNORING ATTENTION

I hear the hurtful, demeaning words that follow once the women ignore their requests or attention.

Shawna Kaye, I thank you. I love your approach. At least you are a woman of dignity who has not bowed to Baal.

I would like to organise a campaign against these negative, crude behaviours. Let’s put up signs, placards, posters, do everything to fight against this culture. Respect our girls, respect our women.
