As more and more stories of catcalling, molestation, and sexual abuse surface, women are starting to take a stronger stance on protecting and supporting one other. Locally, a Facebook page called Catcalled in the Philippines has become a venue for women and even men to share their uncomfortable, invasive and often frightening experiences of verbal aggression. Abroad, women have started physically fighting abusers, with some even managing to stop a potential rape by alerting others about a man spiking his date's drink.

Every one has a part to play. Know that you can always do something, because until people realize that it all boils down to respect, women will have to vigilantly protect one another.
