Part of Eliza Hatch's series Cheer Up Luv.

One of six works sold to raise money for Rights of Women. Each image is accompanied by an explanatory text in which the subject describes the harassment she has encountered.

The following text accompanies this work:

'I was walking down a street in Manhattan when I saw a man walking towards me. His daughter was holding his hand and his young son was behind him on a scooter. As the distance between us got shorter I could tell that he was intensely staring at me, studying my legs, my sundress, my cleavage. Just as our paths crossed he lunged towards me and whispered, "Mmmm, I'd like to taste your chocolate." I was most horrifed that his daughter was right there, watching her father verbally assault me, while his son was behind learning from his actions.'
