RW says 43% of women - just 4% of men - have been harassed on their runs
Runner's World has a good story out called "Running while female" that looks at the harassment women face while running.

This line was interesting to me:

" 43 percent of women at least sometimes experience harassment on the run, according to a recent RW survey, compared with just 4 percent of men. "

I find those numbers to be WAY off. As a man, I got harassed a lot. "Run Forrest run., Keep it up you fa**ot", etc.

Men and women, how many of you have been harassed on a run? I would think the numbers would be near 100% for both sexes.

One thing I'd say is I got harassed a lot when I was running 100+ mpw in short shorts and no shirt. Now that I barely run (less than 20 mpw) and when I do so I'm wearing long clothes, I never get harassed. I'm not denying that women get harassed way more often than men but I wonder if some of it is related to how much clothing you are wearing.

Of course, I'm out there 1/5th of the time that I used to so the opportunities to get harassed are much less. Plus I'm wearing more clothes.
