Sarah Everard’s disappearance shook the world. It highlighted an issue that most women have been aware of for centuries, but the world refused to see. Women simply can’t do everyday activities the same way men can – and that’s a fact. Regardless if you live in the ‘Western world’, this is still the case in many countries. Thankfully, Everard’s disappearance sparked a heated conversation about important topics, such as safety on the streets.
