This is the bizarre moment a woman pinned down a ‘sex pest’ in the street, stripped off and rubbed her breasts on his face as he squirmed on the ground in a shocking anti-sexual harassment stunt.
A young saleswoman, who had been handing out flyers, pinned a man to the ground with her foot as she accuses him of pestering her in public.
The footage was shot in Ribeirao Preto City Center, shows a crowd of bemused onlookers looking on as the t-shirt clad woman berates the unidentified man. She yells at him that she is fed up with being ‘touched and sexually harassed while just doing her job.’
This is the bizarre moment a woman pinned down a ‘sex pest’ in the street.
The alleged assailant pleaded for her to stop, claiming he ‘was out shopping with his wife and has done nothing wrong.’
While the man protests, the irate female then shouts: ‘I am fed up being treated like a sex object. Is it boobs you want?’
Then shockingly strips off her top, exposing her breasts and seconds later straddles the supposed offender. She then bends over her alleged attacker, slaps him in the face and proceeds to pummel his face with her bare chest.
Bystanders supported her actions and urged her on, while others, were simply outraged with her shouting: ‘This is absurd, there is no justification for doing this. How can you do this in front of children in the city center? You’re disrespecting women with your actions.’
Other woman said that she was courageous and ‘this has humiliated and exposed the attacker.’
However, the outrageous display is not all that what it seems. The incident was staged by a theatre crew at the end of last year.
The theatre group simply wanted to highlight the unwelcome attention that can turn into sexually explicit and degrading comments, coupled with intimidating approaches to women working in public places.
Fausto Ribeiro, director of the Confluências group, the creators of the piece, said: ‘We wanted to expose and address something that happens every day to our sisters and female friends. This was meant to challenge people’s perceptions and empower women with the shock tactic of retaliation. We wanted to force men to think more responsibly about their actions and the consequences.’
In a statement, the business said: ‘There was no involvement of any employee or representative in this theatrical action.’
