You! C’mere and Help!
There’s no denying that the world is more hostile toward women than men. Until we can get everyone to stop harassing each other, women will have to constantly look over their shoulders to ensure their safety. Sorry, but that’s just the way things are at the moment.
However, if you’re a woman and you need help in a strange place, don’t be afraid to ask for it. In fact, actively approach someone to lend you a helping hand. According to Gavin DeBecker, the author of The Gift of Fear, asking for help from someone is less risky than waiting for someone to approach you and offer their assistance.
