STREET HARASSMENT: I

I’m 15 years old. I’ve never experienced street harassment so when I innocently wore a skirt and fishnets to meet up with my friend I thought I’d be fine given I’m wearing a hoodie and the fishnets weren’t revealing. I waited at the metro bus stop, kept waiting, and then it happened a man in a red truck honked at me. Right after that another car. Then he circled back…

PUBLIC HARASSMENT: EN 2006, J

En 2006, j'avais une douzaine d'années quand c'est arrivé. J'étais dans le métro avec une copine et un homme d'environ 50 ans, qui était derrière moi, a commencé à me peloter les fesses. Je n'ai pas compris tout de suite car il tenait une pochette qui cachait bien ce qu'il faisait et au début j'ai cru que je sentais juste sa pochette mais nan...je n'ai rien osé dire. Il ne…

STREET HARASSMENT: I WAS WALKING THROUGH…

I was walking through Asda car park getting groceries to go back to uni. I’ve been feeling depressed/ down recently with personal issues so my mind was elsewhere when a male voice suddenly shouted next to me “I want to lick your a**” “let my lick your a**”; he was stood next to his car and shouted this about 5/6 times and I just walked past and completely blanked him.…

STREET HARASSMENT: I HAVE STRUGGLED MY…

I have struggled my entire life with my weight. Recently I was walking by Juniper Park in Queens, it was just getting dark and a group of guys yelled out the window - run you fat f-k! Fat ass. It was humiliating and hurtful. Took me back to elementary school. Like here I am trying to be better, get healthy, yet you still demean me. I've struggled with my weight…

WORKPLACE HARASSMENT: I WAS IN THE…

I was in the Navy, stationed in Hawaii. In 2007, my supervisor was handing out assignments for the night, and when it was my turn he told me my job was under his desk for the night. I was the only female in the shop at that time.

PUBLIC HARASSMENT: I WAS 14 YEARS…

I was 14 years old when I left my house just to say hello to a couple of friends of mine who had come for dinner in the pizzeria right in front where I used to live with my family.

STREET HARASSMENT: I WAS FEELING HAPPY…

I was feeling happy talking to my sister and laughing in the street waiting for my brother-in-law to get out of his car after he parked. He took a long time so our laughter was heard in the quiet streets of downtown Berkeley, CA. I was having a good time doing socially distanced contact with my sister who I haven't seen for months. Out of nowhere, this young man approached…

STREET HARASSMENT: SOME RANDOM GUYS SHOUTED

Some random guys shouted "man-woman" several times at me in a crowd. One pushed me from behind to make me move forward while commenting "no homo". At first, I was very sad and upset and I let them define my worth. I was not able to stand up for myself because I was ashamed. Now I want people to know that if something like this or else is said about…

I experienced sexual harassment at my Oregon workplace for three years before I realized it was inappropriate. I was 23 years old, fresh out of college, and took a job as a receptionist. I was one of the only females in the building, and the youngest person on staff. One of the male senior staff, Jim, would come behind me at my desk and give me massages, tell me (half…

STREET HARASSMENT: Pilit na Kumakausap/I am…

5:30pm. Nagbibisikleta ako pauwi galing trabaho. Paakyat ako ng Makati-Mandaluyong Bridge. May tatlong lalaking siklista sa unahan ko. Noong inabutan ko sila, yung isa sa kanila pilit akong kinakausap habang lumalapit sa akin, "Hi Miss! Miss! Miss! Saan mo nabili bike mo. Sige na sagutin mo naman ako, saan mo na bili bike mo. Miss kausapin mo ako." Sinubukan kong wag pansinin na kunwari hindi ko sya naririnig. Pero grabe…

BYSTANDER INTERVENTION: DON’T BE A SILENT…

I had a very upsetting experience today. But not nearly as upsetting as the man who was treated both rudely and illegally by the manager of Fred Meyer. While I was shopping at Fred Meyer, I said Hello to “V,” a man I recognized as a neighbor from the building where I live. He immediately began telling me in his customary sorrowful and gentle way, how angry he was, that…

STREET HARASSMENT: I WAS LEAVING THE…

I was leaving the library a few blocks from my school and as I was heading to the parking lot, a man stopped me. He gripped my hand and wouldn't let go, telling me I was pretty and asking strange questions like where I lived, what my name was, and ethnicity. I was in complete shock and couldn't seem to move. I had seen him inside the library earlier when…

STREET HARASSMENT: I WAS WALKING DOWN…

I was walking down the street in my neighborhood and a man on the other side of the road barked at me...like a deep "woof woof woof." It's not the usual cat call and stupidly, I turned my head to look which made him bark more, letting me know I had given him exactly what he wanted. I kept my head down and walked faster only looking back at the…
