I have been participating more with my classmates and colleagues from college. It feels weird in a positive mode, and I’m happy I’m applying these little changes in my daily academic life.
I want to briefly talk about sexism in college.
When I was studying for my bachelor degree, I had a lot of male classmates, who in some ways said a bunch of stuff about my body, one in particular ask me:
“What would you do if I tell you that every time you are walking in front of me, I am looking your butt”.
At that time I was nervous, I didn’t know what else to said rather than “I feel uncomfortable about your behavior Henry, and I would like to ask you to stop it”.
As a woman, I was feeling like an outcast among my peers. I had a feeling that I was alone if something like sexual harassment became more aggressive towards me.
Do you have felt or have experimented with a similar situation? I would like to know.
