Jay’s Story

As I walked to a local fast food restaurant, I witnessed a college student being verbally harassed by a man (I presume she didn’t know him). I watched their interactions for a bit, but then the man got too inappropriate, so I intervened. His inappropriate actions? He attempted to grope the student in the parking lot because she was trying to ignore him. I intervened by pretending to know the woman and calmly asking: “Hey, aren’t you in my communications class? Did you write the instructions for the first assignment?” She caught on and continued the conversation by replying, “I did! Where are you going? We can discuss the assignment there.” I’m proud to say I successfully intervened and ended street harassment for at least one Bahamian.
