Followed, propositioned, catcalled

Jennifer, aged 21


I was walking home alone after a night out. It must’ve been about 6am in the morning – I remember as it was December time and near Christmas. A group of men in a black BMW started following me down Central Drive near the Castle pub, all the way down to the gymnasium.

They started shouting at me, asking my name, asking me to get in the car and when I didn’t answer they would drive around the block and find me again. Luckily a taxi driver eventually pulled up beside me and asked if I needed a way of getting home. I’m super grateful to that person still, to this day.

After that night I’ve never walked anywhere alone in the dark.
