Winter and autumn months bring with them many joys – the odd snow day, red and golden leaves, festive parties and celebrations. But, for women and female-indentifying people, they also bring with them something more sinister.

For women and female identifying people?!?

Simple, just opt out of identifying as female. Dduh

The shorter days that come with this time of year mean that we feel unsafe to venture outside our own homes after mid afternoon, when the darkness draws in.

I need not explain too fully why – the very public conversation around male violence against women after the murders of Sarah Everard, Sabina Nessa, Zara Aleena and many more – says it all.

And none of these women are men who identify as female.
