Last night, as I was coming back home in Paris, I walked past a man who sexually/verbally harrassed me. He wasn't the first one and I can't accept being humiliated like that, so I replied "shut up". He then threw an ashtray at me, before rushing back to punch me, in the middle of the street, in front of dozens of people. This is an unacceptable behaviour. It happens everyday, everywhere and I don't know a single woman who doesn't have a similar story. I am sick of feeling unsafe waking in the street. Things need to change, and they need to change now.
In the U.S., everyone would have pulled out their cell phones to record things and post it to their Instagram, Youtube, and Facebook pages.
