I confronted a harasser in Tripoli… and “i felt like I actually took back the night!”

yesterday a guy approached me and grabbed my ass, this wasn’t the first time such thing happens to me. Usually i run and cry feeling violated week and definitely shame.

But this time I took your advice and i actually confronted him i started yelling and demanding an apologize and asking him if he would like someone to do that to his mother or sister, i even identified him in front of the people who were there. he started saying sorry and begged me to stop yelling.

I did feel violated at first but then i felt like I was strong, and the way he begging me to stop and leave really empowered me! and this time instead of regretting walking at night alone on the street i actually felt like I actually took back the night!
