A Woman Wore A Hidden Camera To Show How Many Times In A Day She Gets Harassed.

At 3:17, a woman describes an assault on a subway. You really should hear what she says so you can learn how horrific this is for many women on a daily basis.

Wow I’ve been thinking of doing that hidden camera thing for forever but never got around to it. These ladies are so brave.

"And I think that most women who’ve been assaulted know this look, which is the "I’m getting off on you being uncomfortable"" hits me like a semitruck!! this is important

"We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for. To quote from Whitman, “O me! O life!… of the questions of these recurring; of the endless trains of the faithless… of cities filled with the foolish; what good amid these, O me, O life?” Answer. That you are here - that life exists, and identity; that the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse. That the powerful play *goes on* and you may contribute a verse. What will your verse be?"

John Keating, Dead Poets Society (1989)

What powerful, wondrous words.
