12. It is said that one in three women are victims of some kind of sexual assault

I wonder how it can be that low.

I live in a relatively safe city. and so many women I know have been assualted by both strangers and people they know. Some of it is "only" non-violent stalking, and some of it rather frightening.

Perhaps one telling measure of the oppression experience every day is that women avoid eye contact on the street, keeping eyes down, avoidance if not completely submission. It would seem at least partly - I would assume - because to make eye contact is to invite an unwanted approach.

Most good men have no idea what goes on every day in women's lives.
