New submission : Jessica’s story!

After attending an all female comedy show, I was walking with my friend and saying our goodbyes in front of Rideau Centre. All of a sudden I felt a slight squeeze of my ass, ever so lightly so that maybe I wouldn’t notice. But of course I did. In shock, I yelled “what the fuck” in the direction of a group of guys strutting away laughing. My heart was beating so fast that I just wanted to get out of there. I quickly said goodbye to my friend and briskly walked home while talking to my mom on the phone. I’ve honestly never felt scared in this city before. As I started to regret not really giving it to those guys, my friend texts me that they came back and she screamed at them saying “harassing women is not ok!” Needless to say, I’m very lucky to have her as a friend. Most of all, I just really hate the fact that I started to regret wearing a somewhat revealing dress. Like how fucked up is that? I never thought I’d blame myself, but the threat was scarier than I imagined.
