My thoughts on this: women get cut more slack when photographing on the street and the phone being so ubiquitous is largely ignored, even if it's obvious the person is taking a photo (but in a railway carriage?). Perceptions change when someone points the 'third eye' at another - it does for me when I'm on the receiving end of attention.
