I wanted to share this text :
(written in English after the French one)
Only because I feel concerned about it. Being a women nowadays, is being insulted everytime we set a foot on the street. That "phenomenon" is called street harassment.
At least, that is what happen in France, in Belgium, and i know it must be the same in several other countries.
Some men are not aware of that kind of behavior. They sometimes do not know what women have to go through. So if i post this, it is just to let you know that this is what happen to women every single day in cities.
There is an interesting video of Sophie Peters + the article if you want to know more about street harassment :
I just want to add that it happens to a lot of women, not just a few. Myself, when i walk alone in my town, there is always some man to disturb me what ever he says. I'm so tired of it... And there's nothing I can do !
When will (some) men be respectful? We are not meat! We are in 2013 in civilized countries... ffs. And This is just a shame!
And no, we should not wear burka just not to get insulted. If today I want to go out with a dress it is my right. The way women dress is NO reason to disrespect them.
