Getting There #3: Women On The Go…With Pepperspray

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at LUC chapter.

Shelby and Diana tackle a more sensitive topic this week, as they take a look at the downsides of being a young woman on-the-go. 


Late nights and early mornings can mean taking public transit alone and walking home alone in the dark. How do we look at what this means, as a young woman, without demonizing public transit? What do you have to give up, in order to feel comfortable and safe? 


Find out their take on this week’s episode of “Getting There” by listening here.
