Women Are A Vulnerable Population

In the United States, one in every three women will be assaulted in their lifetime. That statistic includes sexual and non-sexual crimes. Over time, women have learned the unspoken rules of staying safe when out, such as never walking in the dark, parking near a street light if a suspicious character is walking towards you, and crossing the street.  These little rules have been passed down from generations of mothers and grandmothers to help protect future generations and stay safe on the roads. 

All these things will help you escape physical attacks from ill-intentioned people.
