My coworker recently told me about her story. We live in NYC, and she was on her way to a friend's apartment in Brooklyn one night. As she was leaving the train station, she noticed that a man was following her. Fear settled in but she continued to walk down the platform towards the exit, and luckily there was a worker in the station booth who instinctually knew that something was wrong. Understanding the look of fear on my coworker's face, she told the man that she was going to call the police, which was enough to scare him off. The point of my story is that traveling alone particularly at night, can be a scary thing. Why not have a program that partners women together, almost like a buddy system, to eliminate the chances of being alone.
