Are you afraid to walk home alone at night?
I reckon many of you read Bitch Ph.D.'s blog more often than you land on this page, so you may have already seen her post on women, men, and fear. Those of you who haven't, I urge you to read the post and the discussion in the comments. The subjects touched upon include wolf-whistles and catcalls; how late-night street crime affects men more, even though it's women who tend to be afraid to walk alone at night; the vulnerability that accompanies poverty; Take Back the Night; self defense and street smarts. Get yourself a beverage first, because you're in for a long and thought-provoking read.
