You’re sat next to a total stranger on an aeroplane when he makes a remark that makes you uncomfortable.
Do you say something or ignore it?
An American airline is being applauded for taking swift action over a man who sexually harrassed a flight attendant during a pre-takeoff safety demonstration.
Passenger Amber Nelson recounted the event on Facebook in a post which has quickly gone viral, shared almost 5000 times.
“Today I had an experience that drove home so powerfully the way it feels to be a woman in the world today,” she began.
As a female flight attendant was demonstrating how to use a life vest, a man in the row behind Nelson called out “ooh, sexy!”
“He was in a middle seat with a woman on either side of him – they were clearly uncomfortable. Just in front of him, the two women in my row and I exchanged uncomfortable glances,” she wrote.
“Every woman I know has been through this kind of degrading experience. We were trapped on a plane with a guy who clearly disrespected women and saw us as his own personal entertainment.”
As the women looked on at each other trying to work out what to do and whether they should say something to the offender, the flight attendant took action.
