The Walk Home.



*There are times I wish I wasn’t female because I’m fed up of being scared to walk down the street on my own.

*Walk down the street with my eyes on the ground…

*I do things like put my hair up in a certain way that means it’s hard to be grabbed at or if I’m really scared holding my keys between my fingers…
I walk at a certain distance from groups of men in front of me. If they are behind me, I’ll take a different route. This is all just normal to me now. It’s normal for a lot of women I know.
