This week began with International Women's Day, supposedly a day to celebrate. This year's theme was 'choose to challenge'. But towards the end of the week, celebration has turned to mourning, anger and frustration.
Headphones in, no music on. Not drinking too much. Putting a skirt on, taking it off before you leave the house in favour of trousers. Calling someone so you aren't 'alone'. Walking the long way home because it's better lit. Wondering if the 'keys between fingers thing' really works. Wondering if the taxi you're clambering into is safe. Having fun but keeping one eye, always, on your drink. Exhausting.
