How to stay/feel safe as a young woman in London?Watch
Other than that don’t leave your house.
You need to put your health and safety first.
Keep your wits about you and try to avoid areas with very poor lighting or notoriously high levels of antisocial behaviour.
Stay in control your alcohol consumption and avoid being drunk outside of your home because it will slow down your reflexes- making you very vulnerable to all manner of criminals, creeps and scammers.
Have you considered learning some martial arts or taking up self-defence classes?
These may help you to feel more confident going out alone, knowing that any criminal or antisocial jerk that targets you will end up with a lot more than they bargain for.
The only thing you can rely on is your gut, if you have friends consider walking with them, you are much less likely to get attacked in numbers. Do not take any short cuts or paths that are very secluded or have very little to no lighting\CCTV. Try to take the tube over a bus if you can, it's safer to wait at a station where there are staff, lights and CCTV everywhere than at a bus stop where there is almost none of that.
moved to east London recently for uni and have been paranoid a lot, many creepy guys about, being stared at everywhere I go even in joggers and when I'm blackout drunk on campus or at a bar I can't trust myself. today I got approached by like 10 old men at the broad hour of 2pm and they wouldn't leave me alone. I feel like I can't look nice anywhere outside of the uni because I get so scared. anyone else feeling like this
I suggest focusing on what you can control and don't let strangers spoil your day. Those people are often rude and seem to have no apparent self-awareness of how they come across, especially when they think what they're doing is perfectly acceptable in today's society. Try not to pay attention to them and continue going about your day. Think about things you're looking forward to. The more you give yourself room to think about what they're doing, the more unwanted attraction you get.
You can invest in a rape alarm, which can come in handy and are annoyingly loud. Take up self-defence classes to support yourself in case something happens to you. Make sure to stay in public where there are many people, and take note of important numbers or photos to inform your friends in case you worry something might happen.
Stay safe and keep doing you!
