I will never blame a victim, and I will never stand and watch as a man makes unwanted advances on a woman #HowIWillChange

#HowIWillChange means not being a bystander while women expend emotional labour to protect their safety; no longer apathy, but action

Creating safe spaces for women, and calling each other out and talking about it, not being silent, or complicit..#HowIWillChange

It is indeed good to see that men are coming ahead and speaking up. Many men gave a negative response too saying that they’re NOT the problem in this and later Benjamin replied by saying “You’re a problem when you ignore it too.”
It is clear that we can come together and help each other to change this. In the end, women are NOT into this alone but there are MEN who are victims too.
So it is necessary to take a stand.
