In 1971 BBC Sent A Female Journalist To Pinch Men’s Butts For ‘Equality’. Watch What Happens.

This BBC video from 1971 of a female reporter Nicky Woodhead inappropriately touching unsuspecting men in England resurfaced, thanks to Hint Magazine. Not surprising, some men didn’t mind when a pretty girl touched them, but many did mind. 

The BBC experiment was an attempt to highlight sexism in the early ‘70s showing ― on a small scale ― what women endure daily.

Watching the clip in 2017 is an eerie reminder that not all that much has changed.
