My teenage daughter was verbally harassed by men at Motorcycle Mania. Catcalls, men stepping out onto the sidewalk to try to talk to her, etc. She was walking down Main St., coming home from work, not dressed to attract attention. I'm sure she was not the only girl/woman who got that treatment. What a nice atmosphere for Main St.
