Sadly, if you're a woman in the world there's a 100 percent chance that at some point you've had a creep ask for your number on the street, in the train, or literally anywhere they can find you.
In a perfect world, women would be able to say "no thanks" and continue on with their day. But since creepy soliciting men are the same ones who statistically escalate situations into violence, women are often forced to find creative ways to escape the situation.
Giving out a fake phone number is one of the tried and true tactics for getting rid of a harasser, however, a lot of men have now caught on and will try calling you on the spot to make sure the information is correct (which is a truly horrifying power move).
Blocking a harasser on your real phone number is another option, but it still means they have your actual digits and can search out other information about you. This begs the question, barring some Bruce Lee level Kung Fu moves and a swift dash away from the scene, what exactly can a woman do to get rid of a harasser?
