Each time a woman claims she’s scared of being sexually molested or perhaps murdered, many men tend to utter the common excuse: “Not All Men.” However, Sarah Everard’s incident has become an eye-opener as topics, including safety and harassment on the streets, are now the new trend. Women are mostly taking to the internet to explain that the mentioned above excuse isn’t the point but that enough men make some women afraid of walking alone at night.
It’s downright heartbreaking that women in today’s world have to keep coming up with clever strategies to protect themselves. Makeup Artist Fae a few days back made the headlines as she taught the correct way to hold keys for self-defense. Now, Prithika Chowdhury gives some illustrative analogies that aren’t only associated with men but with the spread of an awareness that we can’t trust anybody 100%.
@prithika.chowdhury On TikTok Perfectly Explained That The ‘Not All Men’ Excuse Isn’t The Ideal Response.
@prithika.chowdhuryword of the day: ENOUGH #fyp #foryou #foryoupage
Prithika, in her now-viral clip, illustrated how it isn’t about ‘not all men’ but about how there are enough or too many men out there who are putting women at risk. Prithika makes comedic videos but has since been using the platform to fight against women’s harassment, especially as she has been sexually assaulted like many other women. Prithika hopes her content will change people’s perspectives while inspiring them to talk about the world’s many problems.
Nonetheless, the part-time influencer’s clip has been watched over 1 million times. It has equally gotten over 530K likes, shared over 21K times, and got inundated with over 10K reactions in the comment section. On the other hand, there seems to be a lot of defensiveness from men instead of asking how to help tackle the situation.
