Also, drawing attention to the victim might worsen the event – just as an assault victim might feel more exposed, vulnerable and violated by the case coming to court and being heard in front of a room full of lawyers and jurists.
Surely, there is a better way that does not require announcing that this person has been harrassed and hurt. Perhaps some guerilla action: shout out ‘I suspect this person of being a harrasser – you might want to move away from them in crowded areas’ – and make them responsible for denying the charge as necessary.
A more passive-aggressive option is to make stickers that say the same message and place one the harrasser’s back when they leave the scene – others will notice it and they too will find it later – maybe they will think again about their behaviour.
