We live in the times when it is common for women to receive unwanted sexual remarks over the internet. Though many may ignore or just block such accounts, this brave girl refuses to let go of her harasser so easily.
In a 30-second reel video, this girl shared how she reported the guy, who harassed her online, to his school. The guy texted lewd messages about her body and what she did next will make you applaud her.
In the video, you can see her searching through the guy’s tagged photos until she found a friend. This girl takes the screenshot of the lewd comments and sent them to his friend and texted him to confirm if they’re friends.
She then found another picture that captured the name of the harasser’s school. After looking up the school’s e-mail ID and phone number on Google, she made an attempt to reach them. Firstly, she tried calling the school authorities, and then she sent them the email explaining the situation and attaching the screenshots of his unwanted sexual remarks.
She also mentioned in the mail that she will file a sexual harassment complaint against the boy soon.
At IFORHER, we are in awe of this brilliant girl as she refuses to ignore abuse. We complain about how unsafe online space is for women. But sadly, not many of us take any action. How this brilliant woman went ahead to make sure the harasser learned an important lesson needs not only to be applauded but also implemented.
Hope you will seek inspiration from her; and when the next time you get a lewd message on social media, you will not just block the user but also report him.
