This week, as I was still trying to process the tragic news of Sabina Nessa’s murder, allegedly by none other than a pizza delivery guy, news emerged of the gross abuse of power involved in Sarah Everard’s barbaric murder.


The gut-wrenching note by Sarah’s mother, the sheer brutality of the unspeakable crime, the gruesome way in which Sarah was a victim of “deception, kidnap, rape, strangulation and fire” and that, too, by someone she ought to have trusted sends shivers down my spine. I feel unsafe, upset and insecure, as do millions of other women.


The harrowing news from the past few days alone does beg the question – who do we even trust?
