Videos reportedly out of Saudi Arabia are circulating online showing men harassing a group of women in a mall parking lot said to be in the eastern city of Dhahran. The men heckle and follow the women, one of whom responds by kicking a man who grabbed her.
The incident touched a nerve online. Many condemned the men's behaviour, while others debated if the women could have avoided harassment.
