Lastly, there's much been said in the news media about a third person getting involved to stop an 'eve teasing' situation and been harmed for doing so. We believe that these stories are true but they're not the only cases of a third person's intervention. As a result the stories perpetuate fear. We're not negating that there have been cases of attack on the person who got involved, but surely there have been cases of how the third person / * the spectator / bystander *made a difference. Have you been that third person who got involved? Have you got a story on how the spectator's involvement helped you when you were experiencing any form of street sexual harassment? Yes? *Do send them in no later than Jan 21 subject titled thank you stranger.* We're going to be sharing them on our blog about spectators<http://spectators.blanknoise.org> .
