Thank you, Yes to Carrots, and thank you to everyone who contacted them!
It’s ironic that the company is based there as that is one of the only areas in the United States where street harassment has been studied. The study found that 100% of women had been harassed in public spaces – including whistling – and they didn’t like it!
Also, only a few weeks ago, a man stabbed a woman in San Francisco after she ignored his verbal harassment on the street.
We need companies that market to women to be on the side of women and not perpetuate outdated and harmful stereotypes.
I hope Yes To Carrots will stop using this packaging immediately.
You can let the company know that their product packaging is harmful because it perpetuates the myth that street harassment is okay and that it’s a compliment when neither are true.
