The best thing you can do is be aware of your surroundings. Know where you’re going. Have someone else know where you are and what you’re doing and where you’re going. They make knife necklaces that are awesome. Safety keychains. There’s a “kitty” one that is good. A whistle could be something. Be confident!!! Understand you’re doing this alone and you are prepared and capable. It does suck that we all have to take an extra step that men don’t but it just shows how strong we are and weak they are. We’ve got this girls. Be safe and be aware.
