Who says girls are weak and can’t fight? They clearly haven’t met this young student.
A photo of a young girl has gone viral after she punched a pervert for trying to take advantage of her inside the LRT.
The student, identified as a Ryiene Espino, became a viral sensation after her friend Nicole Sumagui posted a picture of her on Twitter on January 31, 2017. The picture features the spunky girl sporting a bandaged right hand from the injury she suffered after throwing the punch.
According to Sumagui, a man was attempting to molest her friend while they were aboard the LRT. While some women might have gotten intimidated when facing a would-be molester, Espino had no problem defending herself from her attacker. Reportedly, she punched the guy so hard in the face that she broke her hand.
Espino has since earned the admiration of other netizens – who believe women all over should be treated fairly and respectfully. She’s inspired other women to stand their ground and to fight against all forms of harassment.
A netizen commented: “So proud! Must’ve been one hell of a sucker punch! He deserved it!”
Another hoped for her speedy recovery: “I hope you get well really soon, amazing woman!!”
The tweet has received about 2.4K retweets and over 6 thousand likes as of this writing.
Sexual harassment is a punishable offense as per Republic Act 7877.
