The world is a dangerous place, especially for women. We can’t go jogging at a park without twisting our necks back and forth hoping no one is following us. Sexual Harassment is literally happening everywhere! If you’re aware of the #metoo movement you will know that there are over 2.5 million posts of sexual abuse incidents that have occurred to victims around the world.
Many women every once in a while would definitely encounter a harmful person. And this was exactly the case for one woman in China while she was riding in an elevator. Everything seems fine until this man steps up behind her and sniffs her hair while she is looking down at her phone. She steps away from the man as soon as she realizes what this man is up to. After moving away from the man, she puts her phone away, and stands uncomfortably by the side, waiting for the elevator to reach her floor.
But the man doesn’t seem to stop being creepy. He then tries to step back up behind the woman and drapes his hand over her shoulder. This made the woman fill with rage that she knew she shouldn’t be letting him off the hook so easily. She swats his hand off of her shoulder and turns to face the would-be molester. He stares back at her only for a moment before she lets her right-hand fly and slaps the life out of him by slapping the side of his face.
This stuns the man and knocks him back against the elevator wall. He regains his footing and just as he stands up straight, the woman sends a nasty kick to his groin. She kicks the man with everything she got that makes him bend over in pain, holding his hands between his legs.
Then the woman grabs the back of his head and finishes him off by pulling his head down towards the ground as she launches her knee up into the air, smashing it into his face. You can see the man’s head snap back as he falls to the ground. Then the doors open and the woman calmly exits the elevator, leaving the pervert laying in pain on the floor.
It’s great to see this woman standing up for herself and putting this disrespectful man in his place.
According to SpringerLink, “Based on a survey implemented in a county in central China, the researchers found it is common for women to experience gender-based violence… One in five men reported having raped a partner or non-partner woman.”
Now.org tells us that, “According to the National Crime Victimization Survey, which includes crimes that were not reported to the police, 232,960 women in the U.S. were raped or sexually assaulted in 2006. That’s more than 600 women every day.”
So what can we do to help mitigate this issue?
Well, one way would be for women to learn a few self-defense moves.
Because it works in two ways:
- For one, if you can protect yourself, then you can keep yourself from becoming another statistic and end the situation before it even begins.
- And two, by attacking your would-be attacker, you are teaching them that they can’t get away with their assaults any more–potentially stopping them from assaulting other women in the future.
So take a tip from this badass elevator woman and be prepared to defend yourself should a dangerous situation arise.
I have been in love with writing ever since I was a kid. This led me to study English literature for my higher education. I am also an LLB(Law) graduate. I am always curious about happenings in the world. It could be anything and everything. Curiosity to explore and learn new things made me a content writer. I’m focused on improving my writing skills and increasing my passion for knowledge. Aside from being a total bookworm, I love to dance, I do Tiktok, the list goes on!
Here’s a little sneak peek into my personal life. I’m a single mother, and I have a beautiful baby girl. My life would never have been better without her.
