PUBLIC HARASSMENT: 5 YEARS AGO…

5 years ago I went out to a dance club for my friend’s birthday party. This is not my usual scene but I wanted to be a good sport for my friend and do something different. I didn’t know anyone there besides the group I came with. We were hanging out at the bar and these guys started talking to me and I couldn’t get out of the convo. My friend Matthew swiftly stepped in and said, “I like your earrings! Where did they come from?”. His distraction technique worked immediately. The guys left and I was feeling better with blocking the strangers from the conversation and talking about something that made me happy. It wasn’t until taking the Hollaback! training last week that I realized exactly what Matthew did to help me out.
