A recent interview with Keira Knightley got my attention. It can be read here, but I will share the relevant points below, here’s the quote.
“In the age of #MeToo, actress Keira Knightley says that she does not know anyone (woman) who hasn’t been harassed at some point.The interview took place while wandering the streets of North London. During the interview, journalist Lydia Slater notes, a lone male stranger allegedly approached Knightley and shouted at her, “Do you go to this school? You look very young!” “Thank you,” replied Knightley as she and Slater sought “sanctuary in a nearby garden square” where the man proceeded to follow them.”
On first read this seems perfectly understandable. But lets consider a few things.
