Listen to women for their insights and opinions. Know their circumstances to protect them from experiencing it again.
Don't say anything you wouldn't say to your mother. Using language that dehumanises and degrades a woman is inappropriate and highly hurtful.
Women are humans who are just as valuable as men. Treat women the way you'd treat yourself.
Instead of being an idle passerby when something inappropriate happens, interfere with the situation and be there for the woman.
The inequality between the two genders is a systematic problem that is deeply entrenched in our society. Know what you are dealing with to generate the right response.
Look at your own actions and question them. Inquire yourself: Was that an appropriate thing to say to a woman? Did my action make her uncomfortable? Always be alert of your impact.
