What's in your pocket?
Honestly I carry a knife in my pocket when I take walks and my hands are often in them
Speaking of prisoners, convicted rapists school one another in every way they can think of on how not to get caught the next time. Sex offenders come in both sexes; 3 of the ones in my neighborhood are women! One of the male offenders lives right across the street from my apartment. There ought to be a law. No sex offender should be living within easy walking distance from any school.
Although the information I have says that upwards of 85% of people who get raped are attacked by people they know or have met before, one bottom line is: never accept a ride from any stranger, no matter what. Never allow someone to force you into their motor vehicle. Do whatever possible to keep out of the car- turn into a screaming wildcat & fight the attacker off. It saves lives. Once in the car, a person is more completely in the attacker's power. Most of the victims who are forcibly abducted end up dead.
University of Cincinnati has an ingenious service called Nightwalk. You can call the number & ask the service to have someone walk you home or whatever. Within a short time, two volunteer students will come to see you & walk you up to a certain distance wherever you need to go- within eight blocks of school. If you live in a college area, lobby for such a service if the college doesn't have one! Never if you can possibly avoid it- male or female- walk alone at night.
