In a shocking incident, this journalist from Delhi has come forward to share the details of how she was cornered and flashed outside her office building.
At IFORHER, we applaud her courage. Rather than staying silent, she came forward to share the details of this incident to create awareness among other women.
While sharing details of the horrific incident that took place in ITO, New Delhi, she shared:
As she knew she was being followed, she hurried towards her car in the parking lot to quickly drive away.
But even when she sat inside the car, he didn’t leave and waited for her reaction.
While that does make for a scary read, this particular incident shows how the first instinct of taking out the pepper spray becomes impossible in the first instinct.
This brave journalist also shared some safety tips for those who may find themselves in this situation.
Another woman reported a similar incident of being followed outside the same building on Twitter.
As a society, we need to celebrate the courage of young women who are raising their voices to fight for their dignity.
At IFORHER, we applaud this woman’s brave spirit to come forward and share her experience. Hope this story gives you the courage to fight back next time you are shown lewd and inappropriate gestures by men in public spaces!
