I recently stumbled upon this blog post, On The Frightening Realities of Being a Woman in 2017. I thought I would pass it on because, frankly, what happened to this woman needs to end. Please read with caution.
Women experience what you are about to read every day to one extent or another. I, personally, was almost raped twice in my life – once because I jumped into a cab in New York City by myself. The cab driver grabbed my knees and legs while driving and would not stop. It was my first time in the big city, and I was shocked. I somehow managed to get away after pretending that I wanted to see him later. He dropped me off at Grand Central Station where I was to take a train. I will never forget the tears falling from face as I stood on the steps of the train station wondering what the hell just happened.
The second time, I was on a first date; his hands were immediately all over me after I hopped into his car to go to dinner and a movie. I began crying hysterically because I did not know what to do. He was so oblivious to my predicament that he thought I was crazy. I told him I needed to get back home immediately because my father was severely ill. He dropped me off and sped away.
Women go through hell every day in this world. Please read and pass this on.
