It really is scary to know that at any given point in time, there can be someone out there who is ready to harm you. Being a woman is not easy and most women in this country live in fear of getting molested, raped, attacked with acid, and so on. This is not the environment young girls should be growing in. As a society, we need to ensure that our women are safe and feel protected. It is our duty to ensure that they live freely rather than living in fear.
