It’s an established fact that we have a long way to go as far as understanding and stopping harassment is concerned.

However, when more incidents come to light, it further throws us into a hole of shame. One such incident that was recorded and spread everywhere is that of a senator publicly harassing a clearly uncomfortable young girl.

 

Here is the disturbing video that has been making rounds on social media.

While some people were seen defending his actions, labeling them as being affectionate…
