Is street harassment a problem in the U.S.?

Street harassment is a form of sexual harassment that consists of unwanted comments, wolf-whistles, "catcalling," and other actions by strangers in public areas. According to Chilean President Michelle Bachelet, "violence and harassment against women and girls in public spaces remains a largely neglected issue, with few laws or policies in place to address it." It is distinguishable from workplace harassment. More: en.wikipedia.org.
