As women, we already tailor our running routines around the inherent risk of being outside and female, says Katie Babbott on The Spinoff. We run with no headphones, run only in daylight hours along busy streets, glance around us periodically… From an early age, we’re taught that existing in a public space as a woman is dangerous. Now we need other genders to stand up and take our danger seriously. A recent UK study reported that 84% of women have experienced some form of harassment while out running. Attempts to make public spaces safe for women must actively include men as allies and agents for change.
