In this day and age, it’s ridiculous that men think it’s okay to harass women and believe it’s perfectly acceptable – it’s not.
This lady was approached by a group of men in their van and was harassed to the point of tears.
Instead of letting it slide in fear of ridicule or even aggression, the brave woman decided to fight back…
Unfortunately, most women have – or will – experience street harassment at some point in their lives. This stems from whistling, verbal abuse, sexual advances and even violence. One thing for sure is that victims will feel vulnerable, scared and uncomfortable during these experiences.
Anti-harrassment campaigners, iHollaback, collaborated with Cornell University about the subject and their results were shocking…Out of 16,000 females questioned, a whopping 84% of them had experienced some sort of street harassment by the time they reached 17-years-old!
Shockingly, 13 percent of people had been catcalled by the age of 10! Also, half of the women questioned stated that they had been fondled or groped in the street during these incidents.
