Lady request Lyft and attempts to put her friend who is intoxicated/unconscious in my vehicle by herself. #SexualAssaultAwareness. #Safety
As a friend, that puts your friend in a possibility of great danger” he explains. Henderson has become an advocate for domestic violence and sexual assault survivors following his work with the National Domestic Violence Hotline; he says that he realised that attitudes towards sexual assault needed to be addressed:
“I remember going to a workshop and hearing a guy who, after a woman was raped, said, ‘Aye man, boys will be boys’. Like basically that because we’re men, this is in our nature and we can’t control ourselves. It was a shock. I knew that was wrong. From that point on, I knew I had to be more vocal. Men have to hold themselves more accountable.”
What do you think? Should he have given her a ride home?
