This is a video about the things men and women do on a daily basis to prevent being sexually assaulted.
The men do almost nothing. Each woman has a long, detailed list.
I find this so fascinating and never would have guessed that men don’t think about stuff like walking in groups whenever possible, being hyper aware of their surroundings in dark or lightly populated areas, or keeping a close eye on your beverage at parties.
To me this is such automatic behaviour that I’m stunned to hear they aren’t universal actions. This is in no way to say that I believe people who have been sexually assaulted are in any way to blame for what happened to them.
It was just quite eye-opening to see the gender differences in this video. I’d love to hear your stories in the comment section. Have you noticed similar differences in your circles of friends?
