The way we were...making Miami's streets safe for women

90 years ago today....

From the Miami Daily News, Aug. 22, 1921

Miami's police chief considers enacting a law that would target "male flirts who insult [women]" on Miami's streets.

The ordinance would "rid the streets of male loiterers who congregate in front of cigar stores, drug stores or restaurants or stand on the corners and whistle at passing women."
