Every woman has likely had an experience – in a bar, at the movies, walking down the street – where a random male stranger has made her uncomfortable, at the very least. At the extreme (but not uncommon) end of the spectrum are the men that have made us want to run away or send a desperate text to a friend or loved one.

For men, it can be hard to grasp not only how prevalent these encounters are, but how women have even come to expect them when they go about their business alone in public. That’s one reason these tweets, and the women who were brave enough to share their experiences and face the backlash, are so important.
