How safe is it to go out at night alone in Oxford

I'm kind of scared of going out alone at night but there's an event I've been invited to at a different college that is about a mile away. it starts at 7 and finishes at about 10 and no one else going lives near me so I would be walking home alone. am I being ridiculous being scared? should I just go even though I would be walking back alone? (I'm a girl by the way)

FOr women it's a bit different, but Oxon is generally really safe and there's a massive cop shop at the bottom of St Aldates, so Thames Valley's finest are usually a visible presence of a night.

How far do you have to walk? Why not book a cab? Also I find public transport a bit safer, so consider it.
