More than 1 in 3 women (35.6%) and more than 1 in 4 men (28.5%) in the United States have experienced rape, physical violence, and/or stalking by an intimate partner in their lifetime.

Nearly every woman I know has been harassed at least once by a man. Certainly not all men harass women, but enough do to make women preemptively cautious and afraid. Fear of men is so normalized that it seems like common sense. We teach our daughters to be afraid when walking through a parking garage or down the street late at night. We carry our keys and buy pepper spray. Many women think twice before getting on the elevator if a man is there. When meeting someone new on a first date we meet in a public place, with an exit plan.
