#Canada / #Misogyny / #Privacy

The same goes for photography and filming in public spaces in the United States, save for in states where “peeping tom” laws prohibit citizens from taking photos and video of people in private spaces or in public spaces with “expectations of privacy,” like bathrooms or changing rooms. California’s own peeping tom law is the very caveat that may send Playmate Dani Mathers to jail for recording a naked stranger in her gym’s locker room.

Due to the lack of legal pathways to retribution against pickup artists, in 2015, women in Canada found a way to join forces and hold men accountable when filming them without consent.

At the time, it had been widely known that an Ottawa pickup artist named Luke Howard had secretly filmed women and uploaded the videos to YouTube. That there were no effective legal measures women could take against him inspired his targets to take matters into their own hands.

The women shared their stories under the hashtag #CorneredInOttawa and on a now-defunct Tumblr account.
