2017 witnessed many people, normally believed to be upstanding citizens,who have been brought low by accusations of sexual assault, some by members of their own sex.
The situation became so dire this year, that an entire movement was born from it: #MeToo. Surely, one will never forget the Harvey Weinstein episode that opened this particular movement on the media.
The ongoing conversation regarding sexual harassment has merely emphasised the importance of consent.
Recently we have Kate Willett, an actress, put up a small post detailing the difference between flirting and sexual harassment, and the point where it goes too far.
Here's my perspective on the difference between sexual harassment and flirting. pic.twitter.com/LMq0HaTdJ4— Kate Willett (@katewillett) December 10, 2017
And , she's getting great response from all over the world!
Just reading your description of flirting gave me that same little flush that actual flirting does, so 👍 nailed it— Mishell Baker 🌈 (@mishellbaker) December 11, 2017
In my experience many men can't differentiate between a woman flirting and one who is just being as friendly to him as she would be to anyone. Take small steps and pay attention to responses.— TerryHasAnOpinon (@Terrysagirl) December 11, 2017
Totally agree. That's also why I hate when the news uses "uwanted sexual advances" for sexual harassment. It's a bad sanitizing term that makes harassment SOUND more like flirting. https://t.co/uofeSa0csE— Gladstone (@WGladstone) December 10, 2017
I've never read a better definition of the difference. This really ought to be posted up in every pub and workplace in the country. I have brought up my children to be respectful at all times in their relationships, but never quite been able to express it this eloquently.— David Pearce (@davidgpearce) December 11, 2017
