One of dozens of "No Catcall Zone" signs that were put up in New York

NEW YORK — There’s a movement to fight catcalling in New York, with road signs.

Feminist Apparel, a nonprofit feminist clothing company, put up dozens of “No Catcall Zone” signs around Manhattan and Brooklyn for International Anti-Street Harassment Week.

“We hope to get at least one sign up in each borough by the end of the week as street harassment and catcalling is obviously a universal issue not contained to any one neighborhood,” the group said in a statement.

Sales from the clothing company’s website helped pay for the signs.

The city has been removing the signs, especially since they resemble “No Parking” signs.

They’re red and white, but they have a picture of a cat.
