A woman who needed hospital treatment because a man punched her in the face after she told him to stop groping her has vowed not to let threats of violence stop her challenging sexual assaults. Mary Brandon was dancing with friends when her bottom was groped by the man at an outdoor festival in west London on Monday.
In a Facebook post which exposes the darker side of the annual street party “supposed to be about community and good vibes”, Mary Brandon said she spent nine hours at hospital receiving treatment following the alleged assault. Ms Brandon encouraged others to raise awareness of her image and “get the word out that this isn’t OK”. Since being uploaded yesterday it has been shared more than 5,000 times. Describing the incident at the celebrations on Monday, Ms Brandon said: “A man in the crowd grabbed my arse. When I told him not to he did it again. “I pushed him away, exercising my right to tell a man to stop touching my body without my permission, so he took a swing at me and punched me in the face.”
