As I was driving home last Friday, I was sexually harassed by men in a roofing company vehicle who made a gesture depicting oral sex when they passed me.
When I called the company to complain that their employees were sexually harassing women on the highway, I was informed that it would be “mentioned to the guys.”
When I pressed further, the company representative hung up on me.
This is no unique incident, only peculiar in that these men did not consider the company information on their windshield to be a deterrent.
They assumed that they could get away with it because I would dismiss their threat as just another part of my day.
How bittersweet to see women as contenders for our country’s highest offices and still live with the normalcy of sexual harassment in our everyday lives.
Will we accept violence as normal life?
