Groping, unwanted contact, is an invasion of the self that shows you at the core of your being that you aren't safe. It takes something precious and makes it cheap and seedy - as if you weren't worth respecting. As if some women are a grand hotel and you are the run down motel on the other end of town. We are all grand hotels, every one of us. Groping has to stop. That's why we need to make ourselves heard and demand our rights. Women are fully human and fully deserving of human rights and dignity. Our bodies are ours and without full autonomy of the self and body no-one can ever feel safe.
