This list is by all means non-exhaustive. Women everywhere could add thousands of points to my compilation of things women have to worry about. Some may see this as complaining about small things that women get nervous about, but in truth, it's a harsh, scary reality for much of the world's population. It's a call for women to use their voices to speak for change, and a call for men to lead the way in instigating that change. I pray every day that one day, I will live to see a new world where women can live in peace, without fear.
