FLASHBACK: “Hot Chick” at Climate Protest. In Dec 2009, Brandon and I went to Copenhagen to cover the COP15 Climate talks and protest. We took over 300 pics of the events, but this pic quickly became viral, becoming our most viewed picture ever. Why? You decide…

Mother of a “Hot Chick” Speaks!

"As a mother of one of the "Hot Chicks" in this video I have to say I am very thankful that this is respectful. These young women of whom I am so proud, are voicing the movement as this is their future. What is striking to me is the title and then the resulting seriousness and complexity of the protesters. Anyone watching does not doubt for a minute that these people are intelligent, thoughtful and powerful. I am hopeful this movement will spawn a few good candidates, and some standards to hold those who represent us to account. Thank you Steve, my daughter looks beautiful here and strong as she most certainly is.

The “Hot Chicks” Speak, Pt.1

We’ve heard from a few of the amazing women on this site.

Here is “the Egyptian face painter” from the video:


Hi Steve,
I am third person on this video, the egyptian face painter.
Just wanted to thank you for capturing the feminine side of the story and let you know that i do not care if you call me a hot chick. It’s actually humorous and i love it!
To me, it isn’t about the words used, its about who is saying them and I can tell you have the best of intentions.
I have been called a “lady” by men that treat me like shit, and a “hot mama” by men who treat (me) with respect and dignity.
On that note, thank you again.
Sincerely, Dania

Tweets of the day.

@lesslinear: “Hot Chicks of Occupy Wall Street” makes me want to smash things (namely heterosexual men w video cameras)

@ericnrandall: Would like to see a RomCom about banker meets girl furious at her appearance on “hot chicks of occupy wall street.”

@2CowBulls: Just saw your video. I much more inclined to become involved in #OWS now. Sexy girls motivates me more than anything.

@JaeChick: Nothing like degrading women to get attention. You are a small, sorry excuse for a man.

@MeFunk: Whatsay you take down your sexist video, issue a formal apology to female protesters, and then I pour hot coffee on you?
