word4f It's International Anti-Street Harassment Week! Share your stories of street harassment so we can raise awareness of this common form of sexism.
One of the worst experiences I've had was when I was at a street festival in France and a man decided to take advantage of the crowd by putting his hand up my skirt and touching my vagina. I retaliated by punching him in the head. He reacted by attempting to hit me back but my friends got in the middle of us. I ran out of the crowd and cried, but quickly stifled the tears because I felt guilty for even being upset over it. I was so angry and upset but I didn't have the words or support to fully realize what had happened was wrong and not normal. I was only 18 and didn't even know what street harassment was at the time. We need to speak out and report these incidents so that women know they are not alone and that it is not their fault, ever.

curiouscas Ah for a second there I thought my life had more inherent value than that of being a sex object for strangers. Thank you for correcting me #coward #sayittomyface #heforshe #sexobject 2w

  •   the_moirai @krasnyyrenard equality is the key, but it is much more likely that those of us who are not cis males are victims of sexual harassment and violence on the street. Almost every woman I know, including myself, carries at least one self-defense weapon with them at all times, while many of the men I've talked to have no awareness that being afraid to walk alone is a reality that many people face constantly. 3w
