When she eviscerated her subway attacker, Nicola Briggs wasn't planning on becoming an international heroine — she didn't even know she was being filmed. But she was, and she did, and I'm happy to personally confirm she's really that awesome.
That Labor Day weekend, headed to dinner with a friend, the five-foot-tall Briggs realized the man sidling up to her was way too close — and had pulled out his condom-encased penis.
Briggs began shouting, and she didn't stop. Her righteous confrontation, which ended up going viral, would inspire hundreds of thousands, many of whom were women who wished they'd said what she said.
