As found on The West Australian:

An Israeli tourist tired of wolf whistles from road workers in New Zealand stripped off her clothes in a show of defiance, police say.

The woman was about to use an ATM in the main street of Kerikeri, in the far north of the country, when the men whistled, the New Zealand Press Association reported.

She calmly stripped off, then used the cash machine, before getting dressed and walking away.

The woman told police she did not take too kindly to the whistling from the men repairing the road.

“She said she had thought ‘bugger them, I’ll show them what I’ve got’,” Police Sergeant Peter Masters told NZPA.

“She gave the explanation that she had been … pestered by New Zealand men. She’s not an unattractive looking lady,” Masters said.

“She was taken back to the police station and spoken to and told that was inappropriate in New Zealand.”

Sorry, I might be too European, but why would anybody strip naked if they already felt annoyed by unambigiously sexuality-driven attention?
Also, New Zealand police let her get away with just reprimanding her? That woman provoked an international conflict! The only response in kind would have been to have a hot New Zealand road worker strip naked in a public place in Jerusalem. We wouldn’t want any conspiracy theorist to claim that lady had only received such mild punishment because she was Israeli, would we?
