According to global estimates by the World Health Organisation, around 1 in 3 women worldwide have experienced physical and/or sexual violence. That makes up about 35% of the population of women. Moreover, the WHO indicates that approximately 38% of murders of women are committed by a male intimate partner. Evidently, there’s a huge disproportion in terms of who experiences the most violence towards them. Sadly, there’s a pattern that definitely needs reevaluation and the times are calling for a change.

Luckily, young women and girls are starting to speak out more, and the #MeToo movement that broke out several years ago has made it somewhat safer for the victims to come forward with their stories. That doesn’t mean that the problem has gone away.

The more we’re open in these conversations, the safer the world will be for women in the future. That’s why it is important that young people are using social media platforms to speak out on issues that can’t be overlooked anymore. So when someone on TikTok asked “what would you do if there were no men on earth for 24 hours,” it was a learning moment for some. “it makes me mad and sad that women have to fear doing all these things because some idiots thought that it’s a great idea to harass women,” one man on Twitter commented. “We as men need to do better,” another one added.

Scroll down below to read the answers from women and tell us what you think, and what you would do if there were no men for 24 hours, in the comment section!

The thread almost instantly went viral. It seemingly resonated with a lot of people, as almost half a million of Twitter users “liked” it. Naturally, there were people who disagreed with such portrayal of men. “Right… because only men can be criminals and engage in illegal acts,” someone tweeted sarcastically. “Buy a gun, learn self defense, don’t walk alone at night,” one man immediately offered a solution to the problem.

“Saw a TikTok that said, what would you do if there were no men on Earth for 24 hours,” Twitter user @wxixp posted. “Here was the comment section,” she tweeted with a sad emoji—understandably so, as the comment section is really disheartening to read.

One clear pattern emerged—it’s that women would very much like to go out at dark hours without fearing for their lives. In addition to this, there were a couple of people who shared that they would dress any way they want, again, without fearing for their safety.
