The society does not highlight enough the issue of sexual harassment that is rampant in today’s society. It was, therefore, an act worth applauding when 16-year-old Caitlin stood up to a man who was sexually vexing a lady.
She is a New York art student who was getting home from work at night via the subway. When her steely stares failed to stop him, she called him out and put it on record. The recording got over 1.9 million views within a few days.
She informed the BuzzFeed that she caught the woman’s distressed look. The man was using explicit language. She never intended for the video to cause a stir on TikTok. She was surprised that the video caught people’s attention. She adds that the incident highlighted the pitiful state of the society where women are supposed to tolerate all manner of sexual harassment. Most of the time, it has nothing to do with how women carry themselves or dress up.
Men have always had the liberty to sexualize women. Society should be willing to confront the offenders and stop the cycle. Caitlin confesses to having caught on the habit of brave women she had observed doing the same. There were many comments on women who had similar experiences.
