Couzens’ wife expressed confusion as she didn’t see a difference in her husband behaviour. 

Ms Everard’s death struck the world, It shown people just one example of women’s hardships. Sarah did everything in her power to prevent this from happening she fought, she wore bright clothes she even called someone during her journey and still she was brutally strangled to death. The murder brought so much awareness to rape and women cruelty showing that it didn’t matter if you were dressed in an “inappropriate” way it didn’t matter, nothing matters as long as you are a women you will be targeted. This caused for the hashtag #notallmenbuttomanywomen to be made. Meaning that though not all men are rapist or offenders but to many women are being assaulted. Many brave girls have gotten the courage to share there stories. It’s so sad that we live in a world we’re girls have to be scared to walk home in the dark, or be limited to what clothing they want to wear, have to go out with weapons out of fear of being harassed and even wrote that the people we call to protect us want can’t even trust. We can all only hope that soon women won’t have to.

How to help prevent this:



Rest in loving peace Sarah Everard.
