There is universal acceptance that women are constantly under threat of attack. It is in the air we breathe. Don’t go there, don’t do this, don’t wear that, remember I’m only telling you this because it’s common sense. We live our lives exposed, vulnerable and never able to forget it.
Gloss Watch just posted an amazing breakdown of why being female means not only vulnerability, but exposure, and constant blame – for being a woman, for being perceived as weak, for simply taking up space. Instead of addressing the larger problem, we are taught to cover up, to shut up, and to now take selfies just to make sure we arent harassed or attacked on our way home. Safety should not be a privilege.
