Wolf Whistles Drive Woman to Protest — By Getting Naked?

An Internet news rumor run amuck? Sites were reporting this shocking story as fact yesterday — do you believe it? Apparently, a road crew in the small town of Kerikeri, New Zealand, was repairing the main street when they decided to pay too much attention to one woman — who decided to let them know just what she thought about their behavior — by stripping.

According to the story, the woman (an Israeli tourist) took offense to their catcalls and planted herself firm, stripped bare, and used the ATM in the altogether. The clothes-free campaign brought a screeching halt to both the whistles and the road work. She then put her clothes back on and walked away.

The sergeant assigned to the case said the woman told police she didn't like the attention. "She said she had thought '... I'll show them what I've got,' " as the men whistled at her, he said. "She gave the explanation that she had been ... pestered by New Zealand men. She's not an unattractive-looking lady."

Her alleged punishment? "She was taken back to the police station and spoken to and told that was inappropriate (behavio[u]r) in New Zealand." Could this be true, or an Internet hoax masquerading as news?

I live in Kerikeri and this story is true. A few weeks later she was deported from Auckland city for more unruly behaviour. Pretty crazy to see the story on here!!!

lol, I think she just encouraged them rather than discouraging them. I mean, she did do what the guys wanted, in a way. But I can understand if she was just really frustrated and angry out of her mind because I HATE HATE HATE wolf-whistling/cat-calls.

Hypno- on behalf of my gender- thanks for being one of the nice men! I can't stand being catcalled. Fortunately I don't live in an area where it happens much anymore.

I am very proud to say that I have never disrespected a woman by making cat calls. How rude.

It sounds like an internet rumor. Not saying it couldn't ever happen, but the likelihood seems low.

I think the lady has a few screws loose. getting naked for the catcallers means you probably are in need of some attention, no matter how much you deny it!

ahhhhh! ha ha ha! did I tell you I told my guy friend about it, and he came over to hang out with me and the dog outside. in his jeep he had every single handgun he owns (which is strangely a lot) and asked me if i wanted one. I was like oh, um i don't think we're to that point yet. :)

This story didn't happen in New Zealand, it was actually in Texas. And it was our very own Kris, fed up with her creepy neighbors cat-calls. I swear! :true:
