Woman reveals how man made her feel safe by calling his friends

After attending a wedding, most people are overwhelmed with warm feelings of love and perhaps too much champagne. Heading home, guests are likely imagining their future weddings, overwhelmed by excitement for a happy new couple or grateful for their loving partners. The last thing you should think about after such a joyful event is concern for your safety. Sadly, one woman recently shared on Twitter that walking home alone from a wedding was a stark reminder that women never have days off to worry about their well-being.

Earlier this week Amy Clarkin wrote a tweet detailing how she was followed by a group of men in Edinburgh on her way back to her home. Luckily, the men were called in by one of their friends and they ended up leaving Amy alone, but it still upsets everyone who ends up in her. You can read Amy’s full story below, as well as some of the responses we received. collected from twitter.

The men got closer and more uncomfortable for Amy, until finally one of their friends demanded that they leave her alone.

While it frustrates men that men sometimes need another guy to point out their wrongdoings (because it’s not obvious what’s wrong with harassing and inconveniencing someone?), I’m glad that somebody was there to help Amy get home safely. These boys probably haven’t grasped the gravity of the situation because they don’t know what it’s like to be a woman walking alone at night, but that’s no excuse for invading Amy’s space. Actually, UK 2021 poll found that women now feel less safe walking alone at night than 4 years ago. In 2018, 46% of women reported that they always or often feel unsafe walking alone at night, but that number rose to 63% last year. To compare these numbers with how men feel, only 10% of them reported feeling unsafe walking alone at night in 2018, and 15% said the same in 2021.

While being careful at night is generally better safe than sorry, women have good reason to be concerned about their safety. One of the most heartbreaking examples in the UK was the tragic case of Sarah Everard. London-based marketing executive Everard, 33, was kidnapped and murdered by former Metropolitan police officer Wayne Cousens last March. The only reason Everard was chosen as a victim was because she was “a lonely young woman”. Although it was an extreme situation, the women unfortunately have no way of knowing when someone like Cousins ​​is lurking nearby, waiting for their next victim.

Luckily, Amy’s situation didn’t get too grim, but she had every right to feel worried and awkward. It is a relief that one of the men in this group was of sound mind, but it is disappointing that any of them saw their behavior as appropriate. Women shouldn’t need men to save them, but if you’re a guy who’s ever witnessed other men make a woman uncomfortable, please say something. It doesn’t hurt to call them, and you never know what might happen if no one intervenes. Let us know what you think of this situation below, and remember that being an active observer can go a long way.

Readers responded by sharing how important it is for men to hold each other accountable in situations like this because such incidents are all too common.
