Maybe it’s been in a bar, at the movies, or walking down the street, but every woman has likely had an experience where a random male stranger has made her uncomfortable, at the very least. At the extreme (but not uncommon) end of the spectrum are the men that have made us want to run away or send a desperate text to a friend or loved one.
Women have even come to expect this when they go about their business alone in public and yet, for men, it can be hard to comprehend how prevalent these encounters are. That’s one reason these tweets, and the women who were brave enough to share their experiences and face the backlash, are so important.
