Harassment on UA Campus

23 Apr

Sarah was on the University of Arizona mall today, near the Administration Building, when she was verbally attacked. “As I was walking to lunch from my office a man who is know on campus for yelling about different issues, yelled at me that I deserved to be raped for what I was wearing.” Just to be clear, this isn’t about what Sarah was wearing or about someone’s right to his opinion. This kind of harassment is an attempt to assert dominance over public space by trying to frighten and offend.
