Empathy seems to have become a thing of the past. Humans, as a group, are appalingly callous to wrongdoing, unless it hits them directly.

Something as prevalent as catcalling, harassing women on the streets is taken for granted around the world. One artist, however, decided to do something about it.

Terra Lopez, an artist based in Sacramento, LA created an audio exhibit at the Bonnaroo Festival in Tennessee. 

Called 'This Is What It Feels Like', the exhibit allows people to listen to the disgusting catcalls that women of all ages and races are subjected to wherever they go, whatever they wear and whenever they walk out.

While many women told Lopez that it was a daily reality for them, many men were deeply affected, when they stood at the receiving end of those crushing taunts.

Unsettling, isn't it?
