These days, it’s not uncommon for women to experience ‘slut shaming’ in public venues, and rarely do witnesses jump in to defend the victim.
So when a middle-aged man reportedly criticized a young woman’s choice of clothing while riding the Tube in London, England, an elderly woman surprisingly came to the rescue and instantly became an Internet hero.
Scott Sparrow shared is account of the incident on Facebook, and his tale has received more than 5,000 shares.
As the story goes, Sparrow was on the Tube (London’s underground transit system) on Monday evening, traveling between Oxford Circus and Chancery Lane when he witnessed the exchange unfold.
“To my right is sat a lady [sic], 25-30, wearing a revealing dress. To my left is an old lady, almost dead is how old she is,” Sparrow wrote.
“Standing in front of us is a man, 50s, suit and tie, eyeing revealing dress.”
The man reportedly leans over to the lady in the dress and says, “have some self respect when you dress yourself.”
