# no woman ever
Every woman will relate to these infuriating (and hilarious) tweets about everyday sexism
Take a bow, #NoWomanEver.


IF YOU’RE A woman, chances are you’ve been subjected to unwanted comments from men on occasion. Whether it’s catcalling or someone telling you to smile, street harassment is unfortunately part and parcel of being a woman.

Now women are sharing their experiences of street harassment and everyday sexism under the brilliant hashtag #NoWomanEver.

It started when Twitter user @ImJustCeej sent a tweet detailing an unsavoury encounter she had had in the supermarket.

And it snowballed from there.

Women poked fun at those men who insist that they love the mythical “natural look”.

And those men who think that walking beside you for ages is going to make you fancy them.

And those men who turn on you the second you ignore them.

And those men who think insulting you is endearing.

Don’t forget those lads who send you pictures of their, er, lad in the hope that you’ll finally notice them.

Or those men who insist on telling you to smile because God forbid you’re not pleasant every minute of your life.

Who can forget those lovely men who tell you to “calm down”?

And of course, those cocky lads who think lesbians are merely women who haven’t met the right man yet.

Charmers, the lot of them.

The hashtag has been praised for drawing much-needed attention to the everyday sexism many women endure. Indeed many men tweeted about the hashtag and encouraged other men to have a look.

Do it, guys.
