As a Woman, I Want to Stay Hidden While Running

I hate that they have to stay hidden to be safe. Not just from strangers, but boys in their schools and neighborhoods. And no not all boys and men are a threat. But yes, all women have to worry.

And I have to explain to them why men can run at 3:30 a.m. with reflective gear and water, but women run hidden in black with pepper spray, knives, and 911 on speed dial.

That we have to live with fear every moment.

And what do we need to do to change that reality.
