25 Things Men Have Said To Women On The Street That #NoWomanEver Wanted To Hear

"'Girl, he asked me if I was 16 cause he likes em young, and I knew I had to keep him!' #NoWomanEver."

Contrary to what some people who have no experience in the matter are wont to believe, street harassment is a wholly unwelcomed, yet almost universal experience for women β€” and girls

Although there isn't yet any comprehensive research into the topic, initial studies found that up to 65 percent of American women have experienced street harassment. 20 percent of women surveyed reported being been sexually touched, 20 percent had been followed, and 9 percent had been forced to do something sexual, according to the nonprofit organization Stop Street Harassment. 

Over the weekend, women from all corners of the world shared their experiences about being harassed on Twitter with the #NoWomanEver hashtag, with wry humor that underscored the sobriety of the situation.
