Two men sat on top of a girl and ripped her clothes off, but then this courageous woman threw herself into battle.
Katarina is not just a mother - she is a fearless mother and woman. Without regard to her own security she single-handedly prevented a brutal rape of a 17-year-old girl in the streets.
The violent attack took place last Friday evening in Stockholm, and the Swedish social media are bubbling over with pride and tribute to the courageous mother who made the crucial difference.
It's Katarina's daughter, Emilia, who has written about the heroic incident. On Faceboook she writes:
"Friday night my mother saw two men in their 20s kicking and pulling a 17-year-old girl's hair, the girl screamed, and the men sat on top of her and tried to rip her clothes off. My mother ran over there and pushed them away. One of the guys punched my mother hard, but she still managed to wrestle him down, and then my mother took the hand of the young girl, and they ran away together to my mom's car, where they called the police," writes the proud daughter - and continues:
"I'm so damn proud of my amazing mother who dared to step forward and stop this rape. Imagine if they had had any weapons. There should be more of her kind who dare to help and intervene in this kind of situations. My mother is my biggest role model because she is such a strong and courageous woman. All love to you, beautiful mother, " writes Emilia.
Her post has been shared more than 200,000 times in Sweden.
Unfortunately most people tend to ignore what is going on, even when they see it:
Absolutely shocking public rape social experiment in Sweden
Gang sexually assaulted 13-year-old girl in the middle of the day - no adults intervened
That's why we think Katarina's effort is so fantastic and deserves to be widespread.
Please share it with friends.
