Yesterday the country watched as Brett Kavanaugh defended his name against the allegations of sexual assault made by Dr. Christine Ford. One thing that was very clear from the hearings, is that women will be demanded to prove if and when they are attacked by men.
Earlier in the week, a Bronx native was stalked by a man who attempted to enter her apartment building. While most women around the country often go unheard because they have no way of proving their stories, this New York woman luckily had footage from a security camera to corroborate her horrific incident.
30-year-old Alexa was coming home late one night and decided to take an Uber. When she was dropped off in front of her building, a man followed right behind her and almost entered her building.
In an interview with Buzzfeed's As/Is, Alexa opened up about how her situation is just one of millions that belong to the #MeToo movement.
“If you ever doubted movements like the #MeToo movement, I think my story is the perfect example," Alexa told As/Is. "This right here is why we’re consistently talking about how we have to deal with this reality every single day. This right here is why women fear for their lives.”
