Public Harassment: Recently up at college…

Recently up at college there have been so many incidents. Within the last week there have been 3. Today I went to a small business and started looking around for games for my PS3. While I was looking and pulling games the guy sat down at eye level with my butt and stared. When I'd turned around as he talked asking a lot of questions the look in his eye…

Public Harassment: I was at the…

I was at the grocery store and a worker got really close to me and said, “Excuse me.“ Then he said, “That’s a really pretty dress.” The same day I was at the gas station and I heard someone saying something to me as I was pumping gas. I turned around and he was saying, “Can I pump your gas? Can I pay for your gas? You’re so beautiful. Can…

Public Harassment: Multiple incidents of public…

Multiple incidents of public sexual harassment from men whilst minding my own business, usually when walking to or from work or around Westfields Mt Druitt on my lunch break. I have even been harassed in the middle of a busy supermarket; I was wolf whistled at and my body was commented on. Bystanders have never intervened to help. I have always managed to yell back at them, but I hate…

I’m new to VA and as a city girl I love to walk. I was walking to the mall during the summer when a guy in a car honked at me a lot to get my attention. I have decent body shape and it was hot so I had a tight shirt on and jeans. It’s something I always wore in the city. Anyways he started shouting from his car…

Public Harassment: I am a Hispanic…

I am a Hispanic middle-aged woman. I was walking through a crowded grocery aisle shopping for Thanksgiving meal items. I came across a young Hispanic employee trying to assist an older Caucasian female customer. I was stopped in my tracks when I heard the woman tell the employee, "I don't know how they do it in your country, but in this country we use "X ingredient" for our Thanksgiving meal."…

I was walking to the gym around 4:40 am and a very scary guy started calling “hey sexy” to me and then started to follow me. I started to run but he started to run after me.

I got harassed at my fast food job for about 4 months. There was an older man who was hired and made odd sexist, and sexual jokes towards the women and younger boys at work and unfortunately had a special interest in me. He gave me odd nicknames like "smiley", would say we were going out on dates and telling his guy friends at work about me. Things got scary…

Public Harassment: Was walking down the…

Was walking down the street to go and meet my friends in town. A guy who looked to be in his late 30s to early 40s tells me I "have nice tits”, as a 15 year old it's disappointing and disgusting to hear these things. People should be educated on sexual harassment and its effects.

Public Harassment: My friend and I…

My friend and I parked his car. There were a couple white dudes sitting on a stoop. They said to my friend, "Hey Chink! You sure you want to leave your car parked here? Think that's a good idea?" We looked at each other and with a glance decided to park the car somewhere else. There wasn't much else we could do.

Public Harassment: What are you doing…

"What are you doing in this country?! You should go back to where you came from!" A white older woman walked into the library where I work, took one look at a South Asian man seated close to the Reference Desk and laid into him using a loud, belligerent voice in an unrelenting verbal attack. For the record, I am a white middle-aged woman, who is married to a man…

10/10: I was playing around in the nature preserve near Appalachian State. Suddenly, from the trail below the main trail, a man with a blue shirt ripped jeans, and a Walmart bag full of items walks up the trail. I say 'Hello' to him and I sit down and enjoy nature. He takes out a cigarette and smokes, then sits down and looks at his phone. He said he lives…

Public Harassment: I

I’m a 32 year old black Brasileiro who lives in Austrália. I get racially harassed by my neighbor who lives adjacent to me. The man and his family make abusive and racist wifi names about my ethnicity and sometimes say abusive things in their backyard about me when they don’t know anything about me. I blocked their wifi and wear noise canceling headphones but it really should not of even…

Public Harassment: My friend and I…

My friend and I were laying out on the sand at Brighton Beach and at some point we noticed that this guy had sat down behind us, a bit close. We didn't think too much of it but the tide rising made us move to another spot. The guy then moved too and sat behind a woman who was by herself. It was then that we noticed that he was…

Public Harassment: Against a wall

Getting off metro and going south on the pedestrian trail, a man started whispering underneath his breath at me while walking towards me. He eventually cornered me against a building and kept whispering to me underneath his breath. I slipped away between him and the wall and walked briskly towards the more populated street. There was a group of men near the metro station entrance that watched this unfold and…
