This Innocent Looking Woman Packed a Punch for a Guy Who Sexually Assaulted Her

Sexual harassment has become a major issue over the past year, and more and more women are coming forward with their stories, like Leanna Carr, who punched a man that grabbed her while on vacation.

26-year-old Leanna Carr from Colorado went on a trip to Dublin, Ireland, but didn't know the impact it would have on her and other women.

On April 21st, Leanna posted a photo of her bruised knuckle on her twitter account writing "While walking down the street in Dublin earlier this week, a man grabbed my butt. He proceeded to laugh hysterically and said ‘you’re an American, you probably liked it’. Apparently traveling solo has made me a better person bc my first reaction was to punch him in the face.”

Little did the man know that Leanna is a power-lifter and strength trainer that may look just like any other girl, but packs quite the punch thanks to her training.

For many women that are subjected to sexual harassment, speaking about their experience can be difficult, and some even feel like they can't talk about it. Leanna decided to do the opposite and expose the matter right when it happened.

After she posted the photo of her knuckles, Leanna felt somewhat remorseful about what she had done. Luckily, Leanna received an outpour of support on twitter from women and also men who helped her realize that she did nothing wrong.

“In the past, I probably would have felt too shocked and timid to have dealt with the situation. I probably would have just walked away… and that man probably would have continued to prey on innocent women,” Leanna said. “I never use Twitter and didn’t write the post for attention, but I’m glad it went viral. This is something that is very common and hopefully, it encourages more women to feel comfortable and able to stand up for themselves if it does happen to them".
