S**ual harassment is one of the major concerns of women not only in the country but also in different places around the globe. The government is always advising the ladies, young and old, to be more aware and more vigilant of their surroundings, especially if they are alone.

There are also others who are verbally abused and catcalled, even when they’re just walking on the street.

A female netizen shared her experience dealing with a passenger who started to touch the different parts of her body. But unlike the other women who choose to remain silent whenever they are experiencing harassment, the young woman stood up for herself.
