Jemima Goldsmith has revealed that she was harassed by an Uber driver. The acclaimed British filmmaker and the ex-wife of Prime Minister Imran Khan shared the unfortunate incident while replying to the widely-read novelist, Jojo Moyes.
Yes. And for those lucky enough to be able to afford an Uber or cab when too sacred to walk- that’s not always safe either- how many times have you felt scared with a male driver? I had a cab driver stalker who harassed me for two years.

The incident circulated a few years ago when Hassan Mahhmood, a cab driver harassed Jemima Khan. Mahhmood saved her number through Hailo App Service after the latter booked a gap. He went on to bombard Khan with a barrage of messages and calls and later threatened to turn up at her house. Khan had to repeatedly block his number but the guy kept changing it.
After several months of enduring the torture, Khan contacted the authorities and finally Mahhmood admitted to harassing her at Isleworth Crown Court.
It is extremely important to teach men the meaning of consent so that for once we can put an end to these prevalent stories of harassment. More power to Jemima Goldsmith for speaking up!
