You are probably by now conscious of the issues that come with living in a society alongside men if you classify yourself as a woman. There is the undoubtedly present gender wage gap, all the sexual harassments, experiencing daily misogyny, etc.
All in all, living as a woman on this planet isn’t always easy. But now the girls on TikTok came up with an idea. They are sharing their thoughts on what they would do if for 24 hours no men existed on Earth. Could you imagine that? It would have been so quiet.

Most of them state that they would love to go for a walk by themselves one night. Something that sounds so tiny and mundane, but makes you really think about it.
Why isn’t it possible for a woman to go out for a walk only because she wants to? Does she still need to be scared of her life just because she wants to be outside? The brutally truthful answer is yes, women are afraid of men all the time.
Although the answers have given rise to violent bullying by men and women who take offense at the message, the statistics speak for themselves.
44 women have been killed so far in 2020, along with 21 children and 112 men. Of those deaths, there are 199 male suspects and only 26 are female.
In total, more than 30,000 people replied via Facebook, Tik Tok and Twitter to the query.
The vast majority were women who said for 24 hours that they would feel better doing daily tasks without men.
From going for a walk alone at night, to stargazing and jogging with both earphones, women have revealed that if they are alone after dark, they fear for their safety.
We need to absolutely stress out the fact that while not all men are aggressive or threatening, most women have heard or been through enough horror stories in their lives to feel worried about their safety.
