Workplace Harassment: At a company I…

At a company I used to work for we would hire a receptionist and move them back to the floor as an admin when something opened up. We had a woman who was in charge of training the receptionist whom I know was very racist. So I was not shocked when we had two non-white … Continued

Street Harassment: There’s a couple of…

There’s a couple of teenage boys who regularly shout”saggy tits” at me whenever I walk past. I have told them that it’s inappropriate and that I could report them for sexual harassment. I feel self conscious and embarrassed. I dread walking past them but they hang around near where I live. I want people to … Continued

Today a man took a picture of me when I was in line for a gas station bathroom. I knew what he was doing and moved away and he pointed his phone camera toward me as I moved. Luckily my dad walked up. Not 10 minutes later 3 men showed up across the street where … Continued

Street Harassment: I was walking on…

I was walking on a busy street in the small rural town where I live. A car passed by me, stopped, turned around in the parking lot, and came back so someone in the car could whistle loudly at me. I felt annoyed, and I was anxious about what I would do if they came … Continued

Street Harassment: Today afternoon I was…

Today afternoon I was out in the city center with a friend of mine, and after countless catcalls, I lost my patience. This guy pulled over and said something like “hey sexy” or something similar (I can’t and don’t want to remember it) and without hesitation, I pulled out my middle finger. Mistake number one. … Continued

Workplace Harassment: For two years I…

For two years I have been verbally abused by the CEO of our company. She has thrown things at me (and missed). Speaks down to me in front of others. Co workers would see it, but not say anything. Then they would come to me after a “situation” and say, “why are you still here? … Continued

Street harassment: I started running…

I started running 4 years ago, and tonight one of my nightmares almost happened. I’m shaken but ok and left wondering what I can do. I’m a night runner by habit as I am NOT a morning person, and I’ve been catcalled while running before, but tonight while wearing my nox vest there were a … Continued

Street Harassment: Twice now, two different…

Twice now, two different men have stopped me in my local park to tell me I’m beautiful and try to ask me what I’m doing at the moment. Whilst I appreciate it’s meant to be a “compliment”, it makes me feel so watched and unsafe, especially as the park was quiet at both times and … Continued

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
