Stop Street Harassment !!

Stop Street Harassment !!

Street harassment is not really something that I have myself can recall dealing with. In the town that I live it kind of does happen on a regular basis but no one really pays attention to it because in a way we find it normal in way. I think that we as women have come so used to the fact that men will whistle at you or call you names because of the way you appear that we have just came to the terms of ignoring it.

My next door neighbor was a victim of street harassment. She would wake up everyday to take her dog for a walk around 6 am because it was a regular routine. So a couple months after walking her dog she would walk him around my block and a man would scream rude things to her but the first couple of days she payed no mind. Soon later it started to get to her so she told her husband and he walked the dog from then on and it stopped.

I feel that we as people need to take a stand against street harassment. We should at least stand up for each other when we see it going on and we could make at least a little difference. Soon street violence will get out of hand and it will not be pretty.
