If you are an African American woman and you don’t feel safe walking alone at night you are not alone.



Results from a new Gallup survey of over 1,000 black women showed that they feel safe walking alone at night in their neighborhood, compared to nearly three-quarters of Black men surveyed.


The survey also showed that when interacting with police in their neighborhood, two out of three Black women believe they will be treated fairly and with respect.
The data from the Gallup survey also showed that African American women are more likely than Black men to report abuse because of their race.
