Public groping happens often and is a largely unreported sexual crime against women. You can help stop unwanted sexual attention such as wolf whistling, sexual comments, staring, exposure, unwanted touching or feeling unsafe in public by reporting these activities to the appropriate authorities. Our silence allows this type of bad behavior to continue.
As women, we have more in common and share these often damaging experiences. For example, over 90% of British women report unwanted sexual behavior compared to less than 10% for men. By reporting suspicious and actual crimes, we can be empowered to share our story and heal from trauma. Our younger sisters are most vulnerable and, in addition to protecting ourselves, we must protect them, too.
When we come together in sisterhood to address our issues, we are powerful.
