This video moved me…not only because I see it every day, but mostly because I am a victim. I’ve noticed the signs all over the NY subway, telling patrons to report improper touching or behavior. Multiple times I have been seated on the subway and have had a creepy guy stand right in front of me, with his private parts directly in front of my face. I have been threatened while running, and I have been groped at crowded events. And then there’s date rape….look up the statistics. 1 in 4 girls is date raped in college. 1 in 4…and NO one is talking about it! It’s NOT okay. People need to TALK about it and be LOUD! It is a problem that should not be ignored for the sake of all of our daughters, sisters, nieces, and friends.
