A new video making the rounds on social media is forcing people to take a closer look at street harassment in the United States.

In the video, "10 Hours of Walking in NYC as a Woman," a woman does exactly what the title says, and is continuously catcalled and harassed.

Rob Bliss, who filmed the project, partnered with Hollaback!, a movement to end street harassment.

Bliss carried a camera in a backpack and walked in front of the woman who is catcalled over 100 times, volunteer Shoshanna B. Roberts.

The video has been viewed more than 1 million times on YouTube in less than 24 hours.
