Stay on the path and don’t talk to strangers is the advice from little Red Riding Hood’s mother as she sends her off on another elder care errand, a little basket of cakes dangling from her arm. Written many centuries ago, you’d hope that times have moved on, with women able to walk unaccompanied in safety, without experiencing harassment or worse. Sadly it’s still the case in the UK that 66% of girls aged 14 to 21, have experienced unwanted sexual attention in a public place. Nor does it stop there, even women in their eighties are being pestered. To stay safe, women have to think carefully about if, when, and where they go.
