“I am now 64 years old, when I was in university, I used to live in a hostel. At the end of each week, I used to go to my grandparents house. One day, while I was coming back from my grandfather house to the hostel, I got into a bus full of people. One of the men on the bus started moving towards me and standing very close and stuck himself to me. I felt something abnormal was happening. I felt ashamed of what happened to me”“Walking home, a man on the street walked towards me and stroked my vagina. I just froze off and continued walking home” “Walking home from work. Teenager on a bicycle grabbed my chest and quickly cycled away before I could scream”
