Street Harassment: I’ve been harassed too…

I’ve been harassed too many times to count now and I’m 21. I’ve had men grab me and not let me go until I kiss them. I’ve been groped at a concert. I’ve been assaulted and told that it was because of my breasts and that he couldn’t help himself, which obviously made me feel … Continued

Street Harassment: On my way to…

On my way to the grocery store, a man stuck out his tongue and made sexual gestures at me. As a survivor of sexual abuse, this was very triggering. I haven’t been grocery shopping since and may shop elsewhere. In the same intersection, men have approached me asking for my number or following me. I’ve … Continued

Street Harassment: I was told to…

I was told to keep it to myself. It’s been a month but I’m not over it. So been looking who I could talk to about it. Hope it’s okay to share it here: I was a late bloomer and didn’t realize someone could see me in a sexual way till I was 20. But … Continued

Street Harassment: I went shopping with…

I went shopping with a friend. It was a hot summer day and I was wearing pretty revealing clothes. When we passed in front of some guys, one of them catcalled and another said “aw man, the brunette one’s hot” I was the one they were talking about. I really wanted to punch them in … Continued

It was 1a.m. I was returning home on the last suburban train, I was alone in an entire carriage. Suddenly I heard the door opening behind me. I turn around, I see a man, I pay no attention to him and turn back. 10 seconds later I feel a hand touching my head and brushing … Continued

Street Harassment: There was a man…

There was a man experiencing homelessness that was sitting on the street and he was flashing and touching his penis while facing me. It was shocking and frustrating and disgusting. I didn’t want to make a scene because I was with my parents (I am a minor). [got_back]

Street Harassment: I’ve been harassed on…

I’ve been harassed on the street more times than I can remember, and usually I just ignore it and try to move on, even though I go into fight or flight mode. But this one time, I was walking at night to a restaurant after class, and a man stopped me to say, “you look … Continued

Street Harassment: It’s 1:15 minutes after…

It’s 1:15 minutes after the post office closes, broad daylight, on a Saturday. I’m going to brunch with friends after I drop off a package so I had a nice dress shawl on. There’s three or four other people in front of me at the Kiosk. I made sure when I got there that there … Continued

Street Harassment: I was walking with…

I was walking with my cousin. And it was a pretty dark, but there were lots of street lights. A car stopped by us and at first they told us how we shouldn’t be walking. Then proceeded to throw stuff (eggs ?) and laugh at us. To let you know, we are just teenage kids … Continued
