This is a "tough" question. It depends very much on which side of fence the observer sits on as to what would be a "correct" answer.
I do believe that all people should be aware of their own safety. I wouldn't walk down a dark allyway at night or leave my car unlocked. However that doesnt mean that anybody else should take advantage of my stupidity if I did.
Therefore my argument is that all parties concerned are partly at fault if this woman's actions cause unwanted attention. I guess that the crux of your question is you wrods "She did it on prurpose" which I take it means that you believe that it is a form of entrapment which makes the responder not responsible for any oggling or remarks that he/she may make.
This would be using somebody else's stupidity to do something that is stupid and thios would be especially so if the woman concerned stated that the reacvtion was unwelcome.
I hope this makes things a little clearer
