Women Around The World Share Their Harassment Stories And It's Disturbing How Common It Is

Whether it is a working place or a public place, being a woman we all know how common sexual harassment is. In this now-viral thread, women around the world are sharing their harassment stories and it's disturbing to see how common this culture of sexual harassment and sexual assault is.

We have seen times when we used to hear about sexual harassment incidents. These included high profile cases and cases of daily scenarios where it was common for women to face gender discrimination and harassment once they stepped out of their homes. These cases when brought to light, they were hushed and swept under the carpet only to pretend that they never happened, giving more power to accusers and leaving the victim feeling helpless.


The recent rise in the #MeToo movement has given women a platform to not only name and shame those who are part of sexual harassment and sexual assault culture but also give women a sense of safety too. Now that it is easy to bring these issues to light, the platform allows women around the world to speak about the cases of sexual harassment and assault without feeling scared that the society might blame them in return. Most importantly, women have decided not to stay silent anymore and are coming forward with their own dreadful incidents. Recently a Twitter user started a thread and asked the ladies around the world to raise their hands if they have been ever sexually harassed in their lives. You won't be surprised to see how many women from different walks of life came forward with their stories.
