When navigating public spaces, it's important to be aware of what's going on around you. Not only for your own safety but potentially for the safety of someone else who might need your help. You never know when your own intervention could help someone else in danger.
A woman recently shared this warning message on Twitter and it went viral.
"If a girl suddenly acts as if she knows you in public and acts like you're friends, go along w it she could be in danger," the woman, who goes by "M," wrote, in a tweet that has been shared nearly 140K times.
The tweet inspired women and girls to share stories of times they were being harassed or stalked in public and a kind stranger intervened to help them.
