Rape is not the only form of sexual harassment, men must stop these too:

Sexual harassment is not a compliment or a joke. It is a crime.

Most naive men assume that sexual harassment only occurs when rape is involved. There are so many forms of sexual harassment women in Nairobi go through.

1.Grabbing a woman’s body parts without her consent. This mostly happens on the streets. You’ll find matatu touts holding tight onto women just to lure them to get into their matatu. This humiliates a woman making her feel like an object.

2. Staring at a woman sexually. Why make a woman uncomfortable in her own skin? Men, be considerate and respectful. It’s better to approach a woman and compliment than to just stare lustfully.

3.Unwanted sexual messages to a woman who is not your wife nor your girlfriend is harassment.

4. Cat calling. This is the most common form of sexual harrasment in Nairobi. Cat calling is when a man sexually comments on a woman passing by. This makes a woman insecure.

5. Being asked repeatedly for a date. Men should accept NO as for an answer. Not every lady is going to say yes to you. Don’t pressure someone into doing what they don’t want.
