International forum: Other - Why Some Groping Victims Stay Silent

Why women don't do anything when being groped? Perhaps it’s because they were being abused by professionals. A groper doesn’t strike just once. He repeats his depravity so often that he knows how to prey on the various conditions that allow him to go unpunished—surprise, uncertainty, fear, and shame.

Predators rely on the silence and shock of their victims in order to get away with their assaults - indeed, it is part of the revolting thrill for them.

Sometimes, though, victims are also unsure whether a crime of touching in an unappropriate way has been committed. The law here is actually fairly straight-forward: as soon as a person makes contact with someone in a sexual manner without consent — which can include pressing up against someone — that is sexual assault.

There is no single, correct way to respond to harassment. But police advice is to try to extricate yourself from the situation, ask for help from other passengers and call the Police.

Gropers are trying to humiliate you into staying silent. If you feel able, make other passengers aware: calmly relay exactly what is happening and identify the groper.
If you have a bag, use it to put some distance between yourself and the groper. It communicates to them that you won’t tolerate what’s happening. If you’re able to, consider taking a photo of the perpetrator.
If you’re above ground, make a call and refuse to engage. Many perpetrators are excited by the distress they’re causing by isolating you: making a call makes you less alone and simulates apathy for what is taking place in front of you.

Friends what is your opinion? Should a groping victim react or stay silent?

A groping victim should always speak up. I regret not doing so because I have been groped twice before and I was sent to special victims unit. But I am glad that I told the officer that a man had touched me inappropriately which made me extremely uncomfortable. So all groping victims should speak up because if they stayed silent, the police might think the victim was asking for it.
