This Brave Woman In Karachi Scared Away A Harasser Who Flashed His Privates At Her In Broad Daylight

By Sajeer Shaikh | 29 Aug, 2017

Let’s be honest with ourselves – women face harassment when they’re out on the streets.

How many times have you heard women talk about being catcalled, or being stared down at signals? Or how about hearing the same from women who use public transport? Harassment is unfortunately all too common.

Whether women are walking, on a bike or driving, facing harassment is something they, unfortunately, have to bear in Pakistan. 

However, more and more women seem to be taking a stand against this. Be it taking to the streets to reclaim public spaces or by recording instances of harassment, women are not staying silent any longer.

Manal Khan is one such woman. She recorded a motorcyclist following her and her friend while they were traveling. She uploaded the following video in a Facebook post:

The entire incident is beyond appalling. What’s more unfortunate is that the two women had to resort to taking a video of the man, which is when he put on his helmet to protect his identity. Moreover, he is still seen to linger after one of the women starts filming him.

Perhaps the most shocking fact is that this is taking place in broad daylight.

It is unfortunate that this incident took place in the first place. However, it’s a relief to see that the victims are standing up against the harassment. Hopefully, this scares away enough harassers to ensure such things do not happen again and again.

What do you think about this? Let us know in the comments.
