I wanted to give this subject attention on my blog because it really is a big problem. And maybe not all men are like this, but all women experience this. No matter what you wear or what you say, it happens.
It even happens to me, and girls younger than me. I remember several times when I came around a group of boys and they would whistle at me. I just ignored them and nothing happened but it could be worse.
#YesAllWomen because sometimes, when I see a group of boys standing somewhere, I’m afraid of walking past them. And no, that’s not just some random anxiety. It’s because I know what may happen. Because it happened to others.
It’s not normal that we are told we should ignore it, instead of solving the problem. Or that we just have to accept it and take it as a compliment. We really need to do something about it and I think the Yes All Women hashtag helps with guys realizing that it really happens.
