Andie’s Story: “I endure street harassment almost everyday”

As a teenage student who travels to her school via public transportation and walking as well, I endure street harassment almost everyday.

The worst experience I had to date was riding in a bus and a guy, who was probably in his 30s or 40s, on the seat parallel to mine was masturbating.

I did not look directly at it but my peripheral vision was there and I couldn’t unsee it. By the time he was leaving the bus, he wiped off what was left yet there was still some remaining and I could never understand why someone could allow this to be a sight to a teenager like I am.
