1. Carrying your keys in your hand as a “weapon” when walking alone at night.

4. Calling friends when alone in a taxi/Uber in order to feel safe.
5. Or texting them your driver’s details “just in case”.
6. Messaging them when you get home to let them know you’re OK.
7. Sitting near other women on public transport to minimise the risk of being harassed/attacked.
