Harvard graduate, Evelyn Koh, has explained why the phrase is so damaging to women...

Millions of women all around the world face abuse and sexual harassment every single day...


And the scary thing is that its been normalized by so many different cultures.

​Did you know that in the United Kingdom, ninety-seven percent of young women have been sexually harassed by men at some point in their lives?

A survey released by UN Women UK has found that this percentage of females aged between eighteen - twenty-four have suffered sexual harassment, as women report losing faith in the ability of authorities to effectively deal with the abuse that they receive.

This is not okay...

And although the awareness surrounding domestic abuse and sexual harassment is now more prominent than ever, way too many women find themselves as victims of these horrendous crimes every single day.

The story of Sarah Everard is a tragic example of this.

Sarah, who is from London, went missing on March 3rd after walking home at night from a friend's house. Her body was found dumped in woodland a week later.

A serving Metropolitan Police officer has been arrested for her kidnap and murder...

And, quite predictably, people have been reeling over the fact that a member of the police force may be involved with this horrific crime - especially due to the fact that the officer is believed to have had no connection with Sarah in the past.

It just goes to show how you really can't trust anyone...

No matter what their profession may be.

Women have been rallying together online to share tips on how to stay safe when walking out in public or the streets alone...

TikTok

Explaining it's a "pick me" attitude that men use to help their egos, even if they don't realize they're doing it.

"But I'm not one of them. If you depend on me to protect you from male violence, you'll be good."

TikTok

Evelyn expertly explains how the reaction boils down to people policing women instead of taking action against those who have actually done wrong.

The big question asked is; why does asking men to help make women feel safer provoke more outrage than actual violence against women?

If only more men took the time to listen and learn than to make uneducated remarks, maybe women would feel safer.
