“Can’t I Just Walk To My Job In Peace?”

Harassment happens here by drivers so frequently that this post is simply an amalgamation of them all. I am walking to the metro on busy Blair Rd wearing work clothes, ie dress pants or a business skirt.

I am honked at and ogled by drivers and passengers. Sometimes they wave this cutesy wave that makes me feel so gross.

I mean, I am walking to the metro to get to my JOB in the morning. Can’t I just walk to my job in peace without being sexualized?
