Video: Woman Wears Hidden Camera To Catch People Checking Out Her Boobs

A woman wore a hidden camera on her chest caught at least 30 people staring at her boobs.
Video: Woman Wears Hidden Camera To Catch People Checking Out Her Boobs

Whitney Zelig stepped out into the streets of New York, fastened a hidden camera onto the bottom of her top to see how many people checked out her breasts.

The 29-year-old also pulled this stunt to raise awareness about breast cancer, encouraging women to go for check-ups to detect the disease early.

In the short video that Whitney shot, with the help of her brother Chris, she was first checked out by a waiter, before another man walking with his girlfriend through Central Park is also caught staring.

She continued to get more attention while walking in the subway. Even a person dressed up as the Statue of Liberty took off sunglasses for a closer look, as well as a man wearing a Batman costume.

Wearing a low cut top, it’s fair to say Whitney got many looks from pretty much everyone, woman, man, and child getting a glimpse of her boobs.

Commenting on the number of people who checked out her chest, she makes a clear point:

“Ladies don’t forget to check out your own breasts too.”

Women’s breasts are often the subject of attention, and the sexualization of female breasts has had a detrimental effect on how many women view their bodies.

Sometimes it even makes some women embarrassed of themselves or feel uncomfortable in their own skin.

All women need to regain their confidence regarding their boobs as this will make them feel comfortable going for breast cancer.

According to the National Breast Cancer Foundation statistics, one in every eight women will develop breast cancer in the US every year. Cancer Research UK also claims that one in every seven adult females will be diagnosed with the disease in their lifetime.

Although Whitney’s cleaver video may seem a lot like a joke, the message to spread awareness about cancer is “very essential.” Since posting the clip, it has already garnered over 160,000 views

Breast cancer awareness is an effort to raise awareness and reduce the stigma of breast cancer through education on symptoms and treatment. ... The pink ribbon is the most prominent symbol of breast cancer awareness, and in many countries the month of October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

There are about 1.38 million new cases and 458 000 deaths from breast cancer each year (IARC Globocan, 2008). Breast cancer is by far the most common cancer in women worldwide, both in the developed and developing countries. In low- and middle-income countries the incidence has been rising up steadily in the last years due to increase in life expectancy, increase urbanization and adoption of western lifestyles.

Currently there is not sufficient knowledge on the causes of breast cancer, therefore, early detection of the disease remains the cornerstone of breast cancer control. When breast cancer is detected early, and if adequate diagnosis and treatment are available, there is a good chance that breast cancer can be cured. If detected late, however, curative treatment is often no longer an option. In such cases, palliative care to relief the suffering of patients and their families is needed.

The majority of deaths (269 000) occur in low- and middle-income countries, where most women with breast cancer are diagnosed in late stages due mainly to lack of awareness on early detection and barriers to health services. Maria's story (see below) illustrates this dramatic situation common to thousands of women in resource constrained settings. A situation that can be reverted if adequate public health programmes are put in place.

WHO promotes comprehensive breast cancer control programmes as part of national cancer control plans. The recommended early detection strategies for low- and middle-income countries are awareness of early signs and symptoms and screening by clinical breast examination in demonstration areas. Mammography screening is very costly and is feasible only in countries with good health infrastructure that can afford a long-term programme.

  1. Women’s breasts are often the subject of attention, and the sexualization of female breasts has had a detrimental effect on how many women view their bodies."

    The female human breast IS sexual; like many primates she mimics rear sex signals from the front, i.e. they are buttock mimics. This has been understood for many years now.

    "According to the National Breast Cancer Foundation statistics, one in every eight women will develop breast cancer in the US every year."

    That doesn't really math, does it?
