Rhian Ramos helps empower women

May sagot na ang Kapuso actress na si Rhian Ramos sa mga babaeng nakakaranas ng sexual harassment tulad nang karanasan niya noong nakaraang taon.

Rhian Ramos

Kung matatandaan ay may na-post last year si Rhian na kuwento tungkol sa naranasan niyang sexual harassment mula sa lalakeng hindi niya kilala sa isang club na pinuntahan niya.

Marami ang naka-relate sa kuwentong iyon ni Rhian na mga kababaihan na naging biktima ng sexual harassment pero hindi alam ang kanilang gagawin.

Sa tulong ng official fan group ni Rhian na CybeRHIANs, nagpamigay sila ng free pepper spray sa mga kababaihan sa Ayala MRT Station noong nakaraang February 13.

Sa isang video, nagkuwento si Rhian ng rason kung bakit niya naisip ang ganitong proyekto. Para raw ito maprotektahan ang dignidad ng mga kababaihan mula sa pambabastos ng mga mapagsamantalang kalalakihan.

“I wrote something about an experience where I felt disrespected. This brought about so many emails, and DMs (direct messages), and comments about people having negative experiences. Not only about disrespect but also about their safety on public transport.

“I feel like maybe it’s a possibility that so many bad things happen to girls because we have some kind of image where we can’t really defend ourselves. Probably because physically, we’re just small.”

‘Yung mga pinamigay daw nilang pepper sprays ay mula sa lalakeng nang-harass kay Rhian noon. Isang gesture daw ito nang paghingi nito ng tawad sa aktres.

“The cans were actually given to me as an apology gesture by said person in said incident.

“And I think it will be really useful in a cause that’s bigger than what could have been just an embarrassing incident for me.

“I hope those girls tomorrow will feel more able and empowered to protect themselves,” pagtapos pa ni Rhian Ramos.
