Normalisation

I feel privileged to be able to go for a run a walk or cycle pretty much any time of day without being too conscious of the fact I may not be safe.

This is not the case for women in the U.K. and for far too long this has become normalised.

The acceptance now is that women should be protected whilst men needn’t concern themselves with the matter.

A lot of the answer lies in education. And government and schools have been pathetically incompetent when approaching this subject matter.

When the situation is this dark, the culture needs to shift and fast because women deserve to be able to live without fear.

We can all contribute and we can all learn. The issue is there for all of us to see and we can choose what to do about it next and ensuring that we do all we can to make each other feel safe at night is a start.
