Women "will be worried and may well be feeling scared" after the disappearance of Sarah Everard, the head of the Metropolitan Police Cressida Dick has said. On social media, in WhatsApp groups and in Zoom calls across the country, women have been talking about the case of the year-old, who went missing in Clapham, south London, on 3 March. A Met police officer continues to be questioned on suspicion of murder and kidnap after human remains were found during the search for her. Some women are sharing their anger, frustration and fear online - reflecting each others' experiences of walking alone on the streets.
Grace says she never goes out without telling a friend to text her when they get home, or vice versa. Because we have learned nobody is going to protect us. Grace used to live in Clapham, close to where Sarah Everard was last seen. She plans to go to a vigil planned on Saturday at Clapham Common. This has hurt us, as young women.

She moved to the area a few months ago and also plans to go to the vigil on Saturday. She saw the missing person posters around the streets last week. I think maybe I've been desensitised to it.
Daisy says she's used to taking precautions if walking somewhere alone, especially at night. Some men are asking on social media what they can do to help women feel safe if they're walking alone. Most of the replies centre around giving women space on the street if you walk behind them or past them. But some people are also very keen to point out that it's a tiny minority of men who are attackers - using the hashtag NotAllMen.
Shy can remember a few instances when she has felt scared walking in public on her own. I'm talking to you. Because if you're trying to get someone's attention, and she's not acknowledging you, she's ignoring you. You need to back off. Or that I shouldn't have gone down that road?
I do not think that at all," says Shy. But, she says, she's already started making precautions for when she can go out more as lockdown restrictions ease.
And we were already googling different apps that we can put on our phone in case of emergencies. We've got an agreement where we will be on the phone to each other anyway. Shy lives in Birmingham and says the case of Sarah Everard has resonated across the country.
I don't think it's a London issue. I don't think it's a Birmingham issue.
