Why Women Smile at Men Who Sexually Harass Us
Hanna Brooks Olsen

I was walking with my boyfriend, getting off the 67th street Forest Hills station when I saw three teenage boys harassing a teenage girl, trapping her in the revolving cage that lets you out of the subway area. I ran up to them and I told them to stop it. They listened, they stopped. He was totally unaware of what was happening, and he made the comment that they might have been just “fooling around” I told him, it didn’t look like fun for the female teenager, and I wasn’t going to let that happen in front of me.

Hanna, I agree with you, but I also think that as a woman, I will protect other women.
