Stopping Street Harassment

A man grabbed and picked up supermodel Gig Hadid outside a Milan fashion show and she struck him in the face with her elbow. Initial reaction from reporters was critical, implying that a supermodel should put up with harassment and sexual assault.
In "Gigi Hadid Will Not Accept Street Harassment, and Neither Should You,," Lena Dunham reports that Hadid said:"Honestly, I felt I was in danger, and I had  every right to react the way I did."
