Question for the women

A specific complement with no expectation of anything in return and without interrupting her or cornering her in any way is the key. I believe women are commonly exposed to men who complement them and expect something in return or do so at a time and place that pressures them to interact with them. We men always must remember that women are forced to have their guard up against the men who would harass or harm them at all times.

Gentlemen, be the ones who think about what might make a woman fearful or uncomfortable and take care not to act that way. We also need to step up and speak to other men who do those things - don’t let it slide. It’s not cool and it’s up to us to hold ourselves and other men accountable to treat women with respect and ensure they can feel safe.
