Not every person in your life will want to harm you, not every stranger will want to harm you. However, it is proven that the majority of violent crimes against women are perpetrated by people they know. Often these are trusted friends, acquaintances, or ex-partners. When you have tension with someone you know take precautions. Don’t allow someone into your home if you feel uncomfortable even if you know that person and assume they are not going to hurt you. If you do need to have a conversation with someone you are not comfortable with for any reason, have the conversation in a public place with people around or over the phone. This may help you to avoid a violent confrontation.
