Summary Filmmaker Maggie Hadleigh-West believes that for women, walking the streets is like traversing a mine field. The anxiety that is produced by gestures and verbal attacks (leers, taunts, catcalls, and misguided "compliments") are perceived by women as a threat to their safety and are a reminder of their powerlessness in society. Armed with a movie camera, Hadleigh-West recorded men in the act of harassing her on the city streets, filming 112 incidents of street abuse in 7 1/2 hours. War zone documents one woman's experience with this damaging behavior and attempts to define this phenomenon as well as raise the awareness of both men and women to this degrading and debilitating epidemic
